Ability of creative application of materials in electronics is extended in the field of technology of their processing and the change of the properties of materials during their exploitations in electrical circuits, microelectronics, optoelectronic applications, sensors, actuators, superconductors, semiconductors, magnetic structures, and special applications. The processing technologies and the ageing processes are based on the relationships between composition, internal structure, and properties of materials.


Subject presupposes knowledge in relation between internal structure and properties of materials in the level of secondary courses Physics and Chemistry.

Syllabus of lectures:

1.Basic physical-chemical processes in materials processing. Diffusion.

2.Phase transitions. Application of equilibrium phase diagrams.

3.Methods of semiconductor crystallization. Directional crystallization. Zone refining.

4.Epitaxial methods. Vapour and liquid phase epitaxy. MO - Chemical vapour deposition.

5.Physical vapour deposition. Sputtering. Molecular beam epitaxy.

6.Processing of materials in solid state: etching, lithography, micro-fabrication, MEMS.

7.Semiconductor technology: semiconductors processing, P-N junction technology.

8.Materials technology of optoelectronics. LED, OLED, LD, LCD and TFT displays.

9.Materials technology of monolithic and hybrid circuits, wire-bonding, packaging.

10.Printed circuit boards, SMT and THT technology. Joining of electronic materials, welding, soldering, sticking.

11.Technology of ceramic capacitors, MLC, polymer and electrolytic capacitors.

12.Materials technology of transducers and sensors. Materials technology conductors, low temperature superconductors, HTC superconductors.

13.Technology of hard and soft magnetic materials. Materials for data storage in informatics.

14.Ageing of materials, corrosion, electro-migration, polymer degradation.
