Basics of the bottom-up approach to nanofabrication, particularly the possibilities and limits of lithographic techniques as a tool in nanofabrication. Optical lithography and lithography with electron beams, nanofabrication with ion beams, nanolithography by nanoprinting and microcontact, methods based on proximity microscopy (local oxidation method and other nanolithographies based on AFM, nanofabrication, and nanomanipulation based on STM and SNOM).
Competencies and learning outcomes
