CHEM 451/651 – NANOCHEMISTRY
|Prerequisites: CHEM 217, 218, 221, 222, 234, 235, 241||Tues. & Thurs. 11:45-13:00|
This modular course covers the areas of production, characterization and applications of nanoscale structures and materials. Each module is taught by a different professor as well as guest lecturers. Topics may include (but are not limited to) size dependent properties, synthesis of organic and inorganic nanostructures, self-assembled structures, chemical patterning and functional nanopatterns, biomaterials. Nanometer scale fabrication techniques such as lithographic methods, nano-stamping and patterned self-assembly are discussed. Modern analysis techniques such as atomic force microscopy and electron microscopy, which are used to map and measure at the single molecular level are introduced. Applications such as photonics, optical properties, biodetection and biosensors, micro-and nano-fluids, nanoelectronics and nanomachines are presented. The course includes a term project carried out using the nanoscience facilities held in the department research labs. NOTE: Students who have received credit for this topic under a CHEM 498 number may not take this course for credit.
For open graduate positions, please contact the relevant professor directly.
