Module overview

This module will provide an introduction to the theory and practice of bionanotechnology, and introduce students to working in a cleanroom and a wet laboratory.

ELEC6205 includes a bionanotechnology experiment involving state-of-the-art equipment that is normally only used by researchers. The experiment starts with fabrication and characterisation of a microstructured master mold, and continues with casting of an elastomeric stamp and printing microscale patterns of biological molecules. This will take place partly in the Mountbatten clean room and partly in the bio-ECS lab (Centre for Hybrid Biodevices) in the Life Sciences building.

This module is a prerequisite for ELEC6210 Biosensors, except for students that already took ELEC3223 in Part 3. ELEC6205 cannot be taken by students who took ELEC3223 in Part 3.
