Presentation on theme: "Assoc. Prof. Muhammet Toprak KTH, FNM. D level course Compulsory for Nanotechnology Program Year 1 – Period 1 Grading scale:A-F Examination:"— Presentation transcript:
Main content: The new concepts of nanotechnology and the change into a new interdisciplinary paradigm contemporary and in line with students’ future studies will be discussed. The recent scientific and technology work in the nano world will be presented to demonstrate the potential of nanoscience and industrial applications of nanotechnology. The course will also have a part for introducing the KTH library services and scientific information search on different databases. Introduction to scientific report writing is also an integral part of the library program. Course Literature: Introduction to Nanotechnology, by Frank J. Ovens Lecture notes and reference literature.
This course will give a general but advanced introduction to the field and discuss paradigm shifts as scientific frameworks from physics, chemistry and biology as well as from materials science. After a successful completion of the course, students should be able to: Define Nanotechnology. Define Nanomaterials based on their dimensionality. Explain the importance of reduction in materials dimensionality, and its relationship with materials properties. Give examples on size-dependant phenomena. Explain top-down approaches for Nanomaterial fabrication, and give some examples. Explain bottom-up approaches for Nanomaterial fabrication, and give some examples. Give examples on the use of Nanotechnology in biomedical applications. Give examples on the use of Nanotechnology in optical applications. Give examples on the use of Nanotechnology in microelectronics applications. Perform a literature survey on a chosen topic in the scientific literature. Present results of a research in the form of a written report. Present results of a research in the form of an oral presentation.
