Nanotechnology and Bionanotechnology
This course is divided in three major modules: 1) Introduction to nanotechnology; 2) Microscopic characterization of nanomaterials; 3) Topics in bionanotechnology. This latter module may vary depending on the specific interests of the students.
The aim of this course is to introduce the students to the new interdisciplinary area of bionanotechnology. In the end of the course the students should be able to recognize the major principles of nanotechnology, and to understand the underlying chemical and physical principles. The students will also have a general perspective about some applications of nanotechnology in biological fields. The students should also improve their skills in communicating science either orally and written.
