Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to...


... understand the advantages and disadvantages of specific methods for micro- & nanofabrication
... combine methods from lithography, deposition and etching to obtain simple microelectronic devices
... understand the importance of the biocompatibility of materials, that are in immediate contact with living cell cultures.
... can apply microelectronic devices for electrophysiological measurements of living cell cultures (e.g. bioimpedance spectroscopy)
... build biomedical interfacing with field effect devices - ISFET; EOSFET, neuronal Interface, biomedical application of operation amplifiers.

Subject of course

Micro- & nanofabrication methods and materials involved, direct biomedical-interfacing with microstructured surfaces, direct biomedical-interfacing with microelectronic devices, biomedical interfacing with microelectrodes - bioimpedance spectroscopy, biomedical interfacing with field effect devices - ISFET; EOSFET, neuronal Interface, biomedical application of operation amplifiers.

The theoretical know-how gained during the lecture  (4 lectures a 3 hr) will be deepend by a 1-day practical lab exercise. Due to the intensive interaction with students in 2019 only 6 Groups a 3 students will be available.

Teaching methods

interactive lecture, study of recent journal publications, presentations by students, 1-day labcourse consisting of (A) microchip fabrication in the cleanroom and (B) passaging a cell culture onto a chip.

Mode of examination

Oral
