Introduction to the Modern Nanotechnology (edX)
The aim of the course is a basic acquaintance with the concepts and approaches used in the field of nanomaterials design, fabrication and analysis. The course examines the physical basis of modern nanotechnology from the standpoint of semiconductor physics and quantum mechanics. The range of issues covered includes nanosystems classification by dimension, consideration of "bottom-up" and "from top down" approaches, examples of nanomaterials and nanosystems properties changes, the basis of practical device fabrication technologies for electronics, microwave photonics and photovoltaics, as well as the most important techniques for nanomaterial and device characterization.

The basics of physics and technology of nanomaterials and nanosystems are overviewed in the course. The terminology and notions are introduced. The changes in the main properties of semiconductors and metals due to decrease of their size are discussed towards the electronic and optoelectronic applications and modern compound semiconductor materials. Starting from the objects description and mail physical properties peculiarities we move to basics of material and device nanofabrication, ending with nanosystem characterization techniques. Fabrication nanotechnology of the microwave compound semiconductor heterostructure devices for electronics and photonics are outlined.
