Objectives

Objectives of this course

(1) To build a fundamental understanding of the unique properties of materials with nanoscale dimensions.

(2) To learn how to synthesize nanomaterials with controlled size and shape (nanocrystals, nanorods, nanowires, nanotubes, nanoplates, nanocubes, etc) using both chemical and physical methods.

(3) To learn how to characterize nanoscale materials using Electron Scanning Microscope (SEM), Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM), Atomic Force Microscope (AFM), X-Ray Diffraction (XRD), X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS), UV-VIS, IR, Raman, Photoluminescence, etc.

(4) To learn the new applications of nanomaterials in nanotechnology including nanocatalysis, nanoelectronics, nanomagnetism, nanophotonics, nanosensors, nanodevices, nanomedicine, and nanocomputing.

This short course will present many fascinating opportunities for possible discovery of new phenomena, design of new materials with tailored properties, and interesting applications in a variety of nanotechnology fields
