This course covers the study of nanoparticles, nanostructured materials and nanoscale devices. This will be initially done by exploring the chemistry related to the synthesis and assembling of nanoparticles. The course will then progress to the discussion of technologies available for obtaining information about morphology, composition and crystallographic orientation of nanoparticles. This will be followed by the investigation of electronic and magnetic properties of nanomaterials, as well as by discussions about methods available for simulating materials at an atomic level. Finally, the course will cover the study of cutting-edge devices, such as nanopores, single-molecule biosensors and optical tweezers.
