Advanced nanomaterials

MSE-477

Lecturer(s) :

Tileli Vasiliki

Language:

English

Summary

The course gives a detailed explanain of the physical,chemical and thermodynamic effects which are unique for nanostructured materials. In a second part, different methods for synthesis and processing will be explained and important applications of nanomaterials will be presented.

Content

We will discuss the use of nanomaterials in electronics, optics, ceramics, magnetic and catalytic applications. We will attempt to relate properties of materials with respect to size of the building blocks.
