Light It Up

Nano-Size It: July 31 – August 4, 2017

Learn why smaller transistors are better and more powerful


Explore the technologies used to see and create small devices


Design and create your own nano structures

At Nano-Size It you’ll explore the world of “small” and learn why transistors become better when they become smaller. You’ll get hands-on experience on technologies used to see and create nano devices that are 1000 times smaller than your hair. You’ll learn quantum phenomena that only exist in the small world. You’ll be given the challenge of creating your own nano-structures to take home with you.

Camp participants will work in small teams on the week's projects.

All of the Electrify Tech Camps will include recreational activities, daily lunches at a U-M cafeteria, and special activities designed to introduce the camper to Engineering at Michigan.

Meet the Instructor

Prof. P.C. Ku leads the Nanophotonics and Nanofabrication Group (NANO2). His research focuses on making optical devices more energy efficient. For example, he studies how to increase the efficiency of LEDs and solar cells, how to efficiently and securely transmit data, and how to reduce the power requirements for optical devices. P.C. has taught several courses on semidonductor devices, covering semiconductors for electronics, lasers, and solar cells, as well as nanofabrication.
