This course connects
fundamental aspects of nanoscale science with device and system
applications. In six segments, students will explore nanotechnology and
modern product development in molecular engineering, biomimetic
engineering, nanothermodynamics and nanoparticle synthesis, electronic
transport and nanoelectronic circuits, and finite size device applications
involving quantum phenomena.
Course credit is based
on Course Participation (20 %), Exam 1 (40 %) and Exam 2 (40%).
Two one-hour closed
notes exams. All examinations are required, and there will be no make-ups.
Missing an examination or not turning one in is graded as a failure (0.0).
