The systems integration for Scientists module provides a hands-on introduction to practical electronics which is essential for automating and enhancing experimental setups in nano related labs. A key part of this module is a group project, which includes focuses on automating or enhancing the capability of a nano-related experiment in a host lab. Projects chosen in 2022-23 include:

  • Self-alignment of laser beams for (nano-)spectroscopy
  • Expanding Materiom’s Autonomous Platform for biomaterial synthesis and testing
  • Improving control and monitoring of electrochemical etching of porous GaN
  • Gas flow control and automation
