Course specific prerequisites

None

Aim

This course will give an overview of the broad field of Nanoscale Science and its potential. It is to serve as a backbone for master students pursuing a program with a focus set on the nanoscale, be that in physics, chemistry, biology or at the crossroads where these sciences meet.

Goal

To give an overview of the state of the art of micro and nanoscience in all its different flavors. To stimulate the students to seek more knowledge according to their own interests and to enable them to choose specialization. To provide contacts between the students and researchers.

Content

This course will give an overview of the broad field of Nanoscale Science and as such serve as a background and backbone for a masters program focusing on the physical, chemical, biological and/or material aspects of this field of science. Each of the four main directions will be presented in a series of lectures that highlights its forefront and its present status at Chalmers.

The course also addresses the questions of ethical questions regarding science and nanotechnology in particular.

Organisation

Four mini-series of topical lectures covering aspects of nanometer scale physics, material science, nanochemistry and bionanotechnology.

After each series of lectures the student writes a short paper that discusses and reflects on a chosen subtopic of the presented material.

Literature

Research, review and popular articles that cover the different aspects of nanoscience discussed in the topical lectures

Examination

Examination will be based on student participation and reflections
formulated in written papers
