Credit Hours: 3
Must be enrolled in one of the following Level(s):
Description: Enrollment is open to all students. Undergraduate enrollment requires instructor permission via special registration form. An introduction to the basic principles of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Size dependent physical properties of nanoscopic solids will be described using solid state physics and molecular orbital theory as a foundation. Wet chemical techniques that produce nanoscale materials (e.g. carbon nanotubes, semiconductor and metallic nanocrystals, dendrimers...) will be introduced in the second half of the semester. Expected to be taught Spring 2019. Cross-list: CHEM 533, MSNE 534.
