Basic principles and concepts for the development of actuators and sensors in nano technology

Goals and Outline

The lecture is part of the major fields "Microsystem Technology" and "Microactuators and Microsensors" in the Master Course of Mechanical Engineering and of the major field "Functional Materials" in the Master Course "Materials Science and Engineering". The learning outcomes of the lecture comprise important principles of actuation and sensing in nanotechnology as well as the corresponding fabrication technologies. The lecture enables you to explain the layout, function and typical properties of the actuators and sensors.

The lecture addresses students in the fields of mechanical engineering, mechatronics and information technology, materials science and engineering, physics, electrical engineering and economic sciences. A comprehensive introduction is given in the basics and current developments on the nanoscopic length scale.

The lecture is in German, but can be given in English, depending on the listeners.
