Nanomaterials is a survey course that covers concepts and the associated relevant physics and materials science of what makes nanoscale materials so unique. We'll learn about nanoscale characterization (electron and probe microscopy), fabrication at the nanoscale (self-assembly and top-down fabrication), and many current applications of nanomaterials across broad areas from medicine to defense. This course will take an in-depth look at nanomaterials discussed in Introduction to Nanotechnology; however, it stands alone with no prerequisite.
Please note that this 515 course is also listed as a 510 course in the full-time program. It is the same course. Part-time students should register for the 515 course.
