MIT IAP 2021—Hands-on Fabrication on Zoom

Learn about micro-fabrication techniques, and join us via zoom for a live fabrication demo inside the MIT.nano cleanrooms! Learn about thin-film deposition, lithography and etching processes at the micro- and nano-scale - and how to combine these techniques to build a semiconductor device (such as you might find in your computers or phones). For our demo, we’ll start by taking a screen-shot in zoom (of up to 9 people) and then use the MIT.nano tools to turn it into a diffraction grating on a silicon wafer! At the end of the session, we’ll place the wafer inside the window of the fab, so you can come by and see it (safely from outside the building), whenever you’re back on campus!

Monday, January 25 from 4 PM – 7 PM EST
No enrollment limit, and open to all members of the MIT community - but participation preference for the “zoom-to-image” snapshot is given to current undergraduate students.
Interested undergraduates can also check out the 6.152J lab that takes place as an in-person lab at MIT.nano this spring (and you’ll be the one actually using the equipment in the lab - to design, build and test your own device ideas).
