MSN 517 Au’14 Projects

In this  class you are going to do a project (worthy of 30% of your letter grade, in case you are more interested in the letter grade than the enormous amount of stuff you are going to learn by doing the project!). You have two options to choose from. You are free to pick anyone you like.

Nature Formatting Guidelines

You are required to submit 2 progress reports and a final report as a group, in Nature letters(1.2) format. Read the guide carefully, although we are not going to be as strict as Nature for the evaluation, it is a good practice for you to follow the guidelines.

Making and characterizing a graphene transistor

This project aims to make a graphene field-effect transistor (GFET) and characterizing its properties. We are going to start with an oxidized silicon wafer covered with graphene. Than using several fabrication techniques we are going to turn graphene into a functional GFET. Once we have an operational GFET, we are going to start characterizing it using several different techniques.

Surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy

In this project, you are going to fabricate a metallic metasurface using silver and look for Raman signal of certain molecules.
