Module content
Lectures:

The course is focused on the functional properties of materials and their modification in the nanoscale materials. Introduction to electronic, sensing, magnetic, and mechanic properties of inorganic and organic materials (e.g. alloys, ceramics, crystals, composites) is followed by description of the state-of-the-art methods of synthesis of nanomaterials (quantuum dots, nanoparticles, nanowires, nanoplates, etc.) and/or nanostructurizarion (focussed beam and UV litography, nanoprinting, etc.). A review of experimental techniques used for the characterization of nanoscale materials and their functional properties is given as well.

Laboratory classes:

During the laboratory classes students’ teams participate in the preparation of selected nanoscale functional materials (films, composites, nanoparticles and nanosctuctures) and their analysis by means of diffraction, microscopy, spectroscopy, magnetometry, and/or magnetotransport probes. All the activities will be performed under supervision of scientists in charge of selected laboratories, employees of ACMiN AGH.

Project classes:

During the project classes students’ teams propose and discuss a new type of nanoscale material of their choice – the material that might be produced using synthesis and fabrication techniques they have become familiar during laboratory classes. Afterwards they attempt to produce and characterize it. All the activities will be performed under supervision of scientists in charge of selected laboratories, employees of ACMiN AGH.

Method of calculating the final grade:

The final grade is calculated as weighted average:
- oral exam (25%),
- report from laboratory classes (25%),
- presentation and discussion of the project case (20%),
- completion of project classes and final report(30%).
