Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences


Teaching methods



The main target of the advanced technology of nanostructure preparation is to obtain practical skills in the field thin film deposition using physical vapor deposition (PVD) and laser lithography. Students will use research laboratory equipment and setups.

Way of continuous check of knowledge in the course of semester

Presentation of prepared structures. Evaluation of measurement report about preparation of samples.


Other requirements

Preparation of thin films and microstructures, work in a clean room.


Subject has no prerequisities.


Subject has no co-requisities.

Subject syllabus:

Laboratory training include preparation of thin films of dielectrics, semiconductors, and metals and master of lithographic processes. It is based on the particular items: 1. Preparation of thin films by physical vapor deposition processes (PVD) – including processes of magnetron sputtering and evaporation, control of vacuum system, and computer control of the processes 2. Lithographic process including preparation of photoresist using spin coating, input and exposition of the structure using laser lithograph, development and finalization of the lithographic process 3. Characterization of the prepared samples using ex-situ methods – ellipsometry, spectroscopy, optical microscopy, atomic force microscopy (AFM), electron microscopy
