Course No.: 012002

Course Category: major course of subject

Period/Credits: 32/2

Prerequisite: Complex Function Foundation, Mathematical Statistics, College Physics, Physical Optics, Electromagnetic Field Theory, Semiconductor Technology, and so on.  

Aims & Requirements: 

This course is a basic subject course for all Masters students who are engaged in film studies. It is necessary for students who want to study basic materials science, plasma basic theory, and vacuum technology. By learning this process, students can learn more about various coating technologies such as sputtering and chemical vapor deposition. And the course of the film material during the coating process. In addition, the characteristic of the properties of the film material is also an important part of this course.
