Aims
You will be able to describe and evaluate modern directions in (nano-)electronics, including quantum electronics, spin electronics, organic electronics and neuromorphic electronics. Quantum electronics and neuromorphic electronics will be treated in-depth. Specifically, you will be able to describe and evaluate:
 
Quantum electronics: electron interference, quantized conductance, single electron transistors (SETs), quantum dots (QDs), electron transport via quantum tunnelling in SETs and QDs.
 
Neuromorphic electronics: neuromorphic computing overview, neuromorphic functionality in nanoparticle networks and dopant networks in semiconductors, basic statistical learning and training methods for neuromorphic computing, hands-on software implementation of these methods.
Content
Nanoelectronics comprises the study of the electronic and magnetic properties of systems with critical dimensions in the nanoregime. Quantum electronics, spin electronics, organic electronics and neuromorphic electronics form important subfields of nanoelectronics and are being discussed in this course. Quantum electronics and neuromorphic electronics will be treated in-depth. For those who want to get a thorough introduction into the new exciting directions that will contribute to future electronics, this course is indispensable. Recommended for MSc students Nanotechnology. Applied Physics and Electrical Engineering. The course consists of lectures, assessments and a project. In the project, a small research proposal is written on a theme related to the course. The proposal is presented in written and oral form and graded by the lecturers.

Assessment: the final grade is determined based on the results of the written exam (70%), the project (20%), and the assessments (10%).
