Wet Etching in Nanofabrication (Middle and High School curriculum lesson)

Linked product
Description
This lab will help students understand how chemical reactions are used to create the specific shapes on surfaces of crystalline materials, which make up functional components within electronics. The fabrication of electronic devices is now reaching into the nanoscale with the capability of more transistors on a single chip.

Objectives

Nano Content Map
Nanometer-sized things are very small, and often behave differently than larger things do.
Scientists and engineers have formed the interdisciplinary field of nanotechnology by investigating properties and manipulating matter at the nanoscale.
Nanoscience, nanotechnology, and nanoengineering lead to new knowledge and innovations that weren't possible before.
