NANOMATERIALS AND FABRICATION
Credit points: 15
In this subject, students will study the properties, synthesis and applications of materials structured on the nanometre scale. Advanced processing methods for synthesizing nanomaterials ranging from single nanoparticles to three-dimensional nanostructures will be discussed and explored practically. The methods that will be studied include lithography, chemical and physical deposition, and self-assembly. An understanding of these methods will be developed with consideration of relevant thermodynamic and kinetic theories, and how material performance and device and device functionality arises from the controlled manipulation of nanostructure. The subject will also survey current and emerging applications of nanomaterials including nanofluidics, optoelectronics and bio/medical sensing devices. Together with PHY2MOD, PHY2MAC, PHY3SYN and PHY3LAB, this combination will bring together discipline based knowledge and skills which will prepare students for a career in nanotechnology related industry, or for honours and post-graduate research studies in physical sciences.
