Foundations of Nanotechnology III (1-5 Cr)
Particle-Solid Interactions in Nanomaterials
Interaction of high energy photons, electrons, and ions with matter in the context of atomic scale characterization of nanoscale materials, systems, and devices. Nanoscale Analytic Techniques
Physical basis of the major analytical methods used for nanoscale materials analysis. Nanoscale Electronic and Magnetic Properties
Description and atomic scale origins of the electronic and magnetic properties of nanoscale materials, structures, and devices. Optical/Photonic Properties of Nanostructures
The interaction between electromagnetic waves and nanoscale materials, structures, and devices (molecular systems, thin film systems, etc...) is treated with particular attention to the increasing role of quantum effects as length scales approach atomic dimensions.
Solid State Quantum Theory IB
Quantum origins of physical properties in nanoscale systems.
