Summary

This course is an introduction to the concepts and associated relevant physics and materials science principles of what makes nanomaterials outperform their bulk counterparts. It will cover their synthesis and characterization as well as the physical and chemical properties at the nanoscale.

Content

1. Emergence, definitions, challenges

2. Sythesis & characterization

3. Nano - thermodynamic/thermal/mechanical properties

4. Nanoelectronics, nanooptics, and nanomagnetism

5. Carbon-basd nanomaterials and further advances

6. Nano for energy and nano for environment

7. Nanomedicine, nanotoxicology, and safety issues in nano
