Objectives
THE COURSE DEALS THE DESIGN CRITERIA OF ELECTRONIC DEVICES AND SENSORS, THEIR FABRICATION PROCESSES, AS WELL AS THE RESEARCH STUDY OF CHARGE CONDUCTION MECHANISMS IN ELECTRONIC DEVICES QUANTUM LIKE. THE COURSE OBJECTIVE IS THE KNOWLEDGE AND METHODS TO BRIDGE THE GAP BETWEEN THE TECHNOLOGICAL PROCESSES AND PHYSICAL CIRCUITS AND COMPONENTS PERFORMANCES. THE COURSE ALLOWS TO DEEPEN THE PHYSICAL ELECTRICAL AND FABRICATION TECHNOLOGY KNOWLEDGES OF ELECTRONIC DEVICES, SENSORS, ACTUATORS AND MEMS

KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
KNOWLEDGE OF DESIGN CRITERIA OF ELECTRONCIS DEVICES
ABILITY TO BRIDGE FABRICATION TECHONOLOGIES AND PHYSICAL REALISATION OF THE DEVICES AND SENSORS TO THE THEIR FUNCTIONALITY AND ELECTRICAL BEHAVIOUR, THROUGH A DEEP KNOWLEDGE OF PROCESSES LIMITATIONS
ANALISE AND MODEL COMPLEX PHYSICAL PHENOMENA, ALSO THOSE OF QUANTUM MECHANICS, TO UNDERSTAND THE BEHAVIOUR OF ELECTRONIC DEVICES.

KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING ABILITY TO APPLY (APPLYING KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING)
CARRY OUT SCIENTIFIC STUDIES TO CORRELATE EXPERIMENTAL RESULTS AND ADVANCED PHYSICAL MODELS TO EXPLAIN THE BEHAVIOUR OF DEVICES AND SENSORS
DESIGN ELECTRONIC DEVICES AND SENSORS CIRCUITS WITH A PROPER SETTING OF MICROELECTRONICS PROCESS PARAMETERS STARTING WITH THE DESCRIPTION OF CIRCUIT FUNCTIONALITY , ALSO USING TECHNOLOGY CAD

MAKING JUDGEMENTS
UTILISE THE ACQUIRED KNOWLEDGE TO FORMULATE SOLUTIONS OF PROBLEMS ALSO INVOLVING OTHERS DISCIPLINES

COMMUNICATION SKILLS
GROUP WORKING SKILLS, DEVELOPE AN ELECTRONICS PROJECT, CLEARLY SETTING THE LIMITS AND PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED

LEARNING SKILLS
UTILISING THE ACQUIRED KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS TO APPLY EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES TO SOLVE PROBLEMS, ALSO IN NEW CONTEXTS AND WITH NEW MATERIALS.
Prerequisites
FOR THE SUCCESSFUL ACHIEVEMENT OF THE LEARNING OUTCOMES, ANALOG AND DIGITAL ELECTRONICS KNOWLEDGES ARE REQUIRED

ACCORDING TO THE TWO-YEAR PROJECT OF TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION AND TO THE INTEREST OF THE STUDENTS, AS AN ALTERNATIVE IS POSSIBLE TO STUDY :
a) ADVANCED PHYSICAL MODELS OF MODERN ELECTRONIC DEVICES, SCALING; DESIGN RULES FOR BIPOLAR AND MOSFET CIRCUITS; INNOVATIVE ARCHITECTURE OF DEVICES WITH QUANTUM EFFECT; SIGNLE ELECTRON DEVICES; PROCESS AND DEVICES TOOLS. 15 HOURS
b) ENVIRONMENTAL APPLICATIONS OF ELECTRONIC AND NANOELECTRONIC DEVICES: THIN FILM SENSORS ELECTRONIC NOSE. NANOTECHNOLOGY FOR MEDICINE AND LIFE SCIENCE: NANOSENSORS AND BIOSENSORS, ELECTRONCI TECHNIQUES FOR DNA ANALYSIS, “LAB ON CHIP”, NANOCLUSTER PHOTONIC APPLICATIONS; NANOPARTICLE MEMORY DEVICES; BIPOLAR ORGANIC MOLECULES MONOLAYER; BRIEF OVERVIEW ON SPINTRONICS AND QUANTUM COMPUTING. 15 HOURS
c) EPITAXIAL GROWTH. SILICON DIOXIDE. CHEMICAL VAPOUR DEPOSITION (CVD), RF AND MAGNETRON SPUTTERING CHARACTERIZATION TECHNIQUES FOR MATERIALS AND THIN FILMS THEORY AND LABORATORY 15 HOURS
Teaching Methods
THE COURSE COVERS THEORETICAL LECTURES (40 HOURS 4 CFU), CLASSROOM EXERCISE (10 HOURS 1 CFU) LABORATORY (10 HOURS 1 CFU). DURING CLASSROOM EXERCISE THE USE IS ENCOURAGED OF ANALYTICAL MODELS TO DEFINE ELECTRONIC FABRICATION PROCESSES OR DEVICE CHARACTERISTICS AND THE RESULTS OF EXPERIMENTAL MEASUREMENTS. DURING LABORATORY, THE STUDENTS WILL USE CAD TOOLS, TO DESIGN PROCESSES AND DEVICES, AND CHARACTERIZATION AND FABRICATION EQUIPMENT.
Verification of learning
THE STUDENT’S ASSESSMENT PERFORMANCE IS MADE THOUGH A DEVICE DESIGN PROJECT AND AN ORAL EXAMINATION, WHICH DURATION IS OF ABOUT ONE HOUR. THE ORAL EXAM, OF AN AVERAGE DURATION OF 1 HOUR, HAS THE AIM TO ASCERTAIN THE USE OF THE KNOWLEDGES ACQUIRED IN CRITICAL WAY, THE ABILITY OF MAKING ANALYSIS AND JUDGMENTS CRITICALLY, ALSO IN DIFFERENT CONTEXT, EVALUATING THE MORE APPROPRIATE APPROACH TO MAKE ARGUMENTS ABOUT THE REQUIREMENTS AS WELL AS COMMUNICATION SKILLS OF THE STUDENT. THE FINAL GRADE EXPRESSED IN THIRTIETHS, EVENTUALLY CUM LAUDE, WILL TAKE IN ACCOUNT OF THE ACQUIRED MATURITY IN THE SPEAKING QUALITY AND ABILITY AND MAKING JUDGEMENT.
