“Nanolithography” is an intensive course with a relatively narrow scope, but aims to provide the students with a deep understanding of two major nanofabrication techniques, electron beam lithography and nanoimprint lithography. The challenge is that the course takes place in just 3 weeks, including writing of an extensive report and oral examination. This is done through an accelerated project structure, with extensive use of real and simulated experimental laboratory work, where each day culminates in the delivery of a short report. The presentation will concentrate on practical strategies and experiences in delivering a half year course in 3 weeks, in a way that is intensive, yet stimulating and engaging.
