Aims and objectives

The aim of this unit is too provide students with a basic understanding of the complete sequence in the nanofabrication processes from methods to fabricated structures, to characterize them and an overview of the major applications areas of nanotechnology.

Unit Learning Outcomes

Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to:

1. Describe the main techniques used manufacture new materials and nanostructures by nanofabrication technologies. (K1, K3, S1, A3)
2. Discuss a broad overview of the properties and applications of nanomaterials.(K4, S1, A2)
3. Examine the basic processes in metrology and characterization of nanomaterials.(K3, S1, A4)
4. Demonstrate and appreciate applications of a new type of nanomaterial or nanodevice. (K4, S1, A7)
