The Portland Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Academy (PNNA)—comprised of faculty members from Portland State University (across six academic departments) offers this hands-on training course, PNNA-NanoFab, on fabrication and characterization techniques currently used in the fabrication and characterization of materials with an emphasis on nanotechnology applications. The organization of this course constitutes an initial step taken by the PNNA group towards helping students obtain a professional formation with a multidisciplinary perspective.

PNNA NanoFab is organized with a backbone of main topics of interest, still allows fulfilling its objectives though additional contemporary topics. This flexibility allows updating the course with current disruptive techniques, thus students are exposed to an updated professional formation. For Spring-2013 the course has concatenated a series of experimental training sessions required to implement and understand lithography processes, which confluence into a final photolithography session using a projection mask aligner tool. In parallel, the course is enriched by a series of other well-established, as well as under developing techniques, namely focused ion beam, fabrication of carbon nanotubes, and Raman Spectroscopy characaterization.
