Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

Through this course students with a special interest area within the field of solid state devices can perform studies that have been individually defined. Possible topics include one or more of: analysis, simulation, design, materials growth and characterization, processing, process control, reliability testing, electrical characterization, high frequency characterization, noise, photonic characterization.

The course can also be used to report shorter courses outside of KTH like summer schools etc.

Intended learning outcomes *

After passing this course you will be able to solve a design, implementation or investigative task with limited supervision, and to report the result of such a task.

More precisely, you will be able to

  • plan, carry through and report such a task in solid state devices,
  • obtain and evaluate information applicable for carrying out the task,
  • choose a course of approach and define, follow and follow up a plan for carrying out the task in a given resource budget,
  • report your results in writing, professionally,
  • show in depth knowledge in an area of solid state devices.
