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.
