Nanomaterials: Physics and Chemistry

when 15 August 2016 - 26 August 2016
language English
duration 2 weeks
credits 3 ECTS
fee EUR 800

The fields of nanoscience and nanotechnology depend on materials with critical dimensions in the nanometer range. Examples include organic macromolecules, inorganic catalyst particles, and size-quantized metal and semiconductor structures. The properties of these materials depend on the size and shape of the nanoparticles and their ordering in 2-D and 3-D structures.

The topics of this course are: Quantum dots, Colloids, Catalyst synthesis, Photocatalysis, and characterisation methods (electron and optical microscopy).

Successful participants of the summer school will be offered the opportunity to do their master studies at the Debye Insitute of Nanomaterials Science.

Course leader

Dr. Rosa Bulo, Dr. Sanli Faez, Dr. Peter Ngene
