Course aim

This three-week course is aimed at providing training for graduate students, postdoctoral and junior scientists, in the field of NANOSCIENCES and NANOTECHNOLOGIES.

The academic and practical courses will cover aspects such as the elaboration, characterization and functionalities of nano-objects.

The program is structured to highlight the fundamental and technological advances in Nanoelectronics (session A) and the interface between Physics, Chemistry and Biology (session B). The two sessions are run in parallel but they also share common lectures and practicals, as interdisciplinarity is a clear objective of this school.

The role of “hands-on” activities is emphasised. Half of the program is devoted to practical work which will be held in clean-room facilities at the Inter-university Center for MicroElectronics (CIME) and Grenoble research laboratories.
