Description: Introduction to Nanoscience and Nanoscale materials with foci in what makes materials with tiny dimensions interesting, important and useful. In particular, this course will cover the synthesis and characterization of many different nanomaterials, such as metal and semiconductor colloids, particles, wires and DNA-based structures and contrast how the properties of these nanomaterials differ from their conventional counterpoints. Further, we will discuss the principles of common characterization methods in nanoscience and we will discuss how the different length-scales of nanomaterials can govern their assembly and function- with emphasis on devices and analytical probes. Letter grade only.
