Small Scale Stenciling and Sculpting
This is a two part of inquiry-driven lesson designed to help students understand the process of patterning materials through selective exposure and development of films. This activity is analogous with some nanofabrication processes. This lab will help students understand some of the challenges encountered while making semiconductor chips and waveguides, both of which are found in electronic circuits. Part 1 is the Small Scale Stenciling Mask lab and Part 2 is the Small Scale Sculpting Etch Lab.
