This course will provide students with an understanding of what nanotechnology is. Students undertake studies focusing on the major themes of Nanotechnology, e.g. bionanotechnology, nanostructured materials and Nanoelectronics. A major component of the course is the study of nanoscience and its application in nanotechnological devices, e.g. quantum computing, DNA chips, nanogears, quantum dots, DNA sequencing, nanoparticles, and biosensors. Students will have the opportunity to visit the NSW Nanofabrication facility, which is located on the UNSW campus. The course is only available to students enrolled in program 3617 and cannot be used as a general education course.
