MSE 318 Nanomaterials



This course describes the most recent advances in the synthesis, fabrication and characterization of nanomaterials. Topics to be covered: Zero-dimensional nanomaterials, including nanoparticles, quantum dots and nanocrystals; one dimensional materials including nanowires and nanotubes; two-dimensional materials: including self-assembled monolayers, patterned surfaces and quantum well; three-dimensional nanomaterials: including nanoporosity, nanocomposites, block copolymers, and supra-crystals. Emphasis on the fundamental surface and size-related physical and chemical properties of nanomaterials; and their applications in biosensing, nanomedicine, catalysis, photonics, and nanoelectronics.
