A&EP/ENGR 102 Introduction to Nanoscience & Nanoengineering Laboratory Section Information Fall 2006 Laboratory: The laboratory section provides a hands-on introduction to techniques commonly used in nanoscale science and engineering (NSE). Topics include top-down and bottom-up approaches to nanofabrication; scanned probe microscopy; and electronic, magnetic and optical techniques for probing nanoscale structures. Labs will begin on the first full week of class (the week of August 28). Lab sections will meet every week except the weeks of Fall Break and Thanksgiving. In addition to the labs described in the manual, supplementary activities, demonstrations, and tours will be arranged. Lab Sections: M, Tu, W, or Th 2:30-4:25 p.m. Location: 111 Ward Lab, unless otherwise announced (Ward Lab is locked at all times. Please arrive five minutes prior to your lab section to be let in. If you are locked out, press the doorbell or call 255-0661 to ring the telephone in the lab room.) Lab Instructor: Monica Plisch Office: 632 Clark Hall Email: mjp11@cornell.edu Phone: 607-255-2102 Office Hours: Tu, Th 11 a.m. - 12 p.m., or by appointment Lab TAs: To be announced Lab reports: Students are to prepare short written reports on each laboratory experiment. Reports should include answers to all questions listed in the Analysis section and a brief summary of the lab procedure and major results. Lab reports are to be typed or neatly handwritten. Reports are due the following week at the start of your lab section unless otherwise announced; late reports lose 10% for each day late.
