Spring 2017 IEN Soft Lithography for Microfluidics Short Course

Date and Time: 
Thursday, April 13, 2017 - 9:30am-Friday, April 14, 2017 - 5:00pm
The Marcus Nanotechnology Building, Room 1116, 345 Ferst Drive Atlanta, GA 30332
The Institute for Electronics and Nanotechnology (IEN) at Georgia Tech will offer a new short course on “Soft Lithography for Microfluidics” on April 13 & 14, 2017. This course module is designed for individuals interested in hands-on training in the fabrication of microfluidic devices using the soft lithography technique. This 2 day intensive short course will be structured to assume no prior knowledge of the technologies by the participants. The course agenda is evenly divided between laboratory hands-on sessions, including SU-8 master mold creation using photolithography and PDMS device fabrication in the IEN cleanroom, and supporting lectures.  The goal for this course is to impart a basic understanding of soft lithography for microfluidic applications as practiced in academia and industry.

Target Audience
This short course is open to off-campus researchers from academia, industry and government laboratories/organizations and is not limited to current Georgia Tech students or IEN users. Anyone who is interested in starting research in the area of microfluidics or PDMS device fabrication is invited and strongly encouraged to participate.

Rates:Rates include lunches on all days*
* Tech Rate: $150
Academic and Government Rate: $300
Industry Rate: $600
