ADVANCED 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 synthesising 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 functionality arise from the controlled manipulation of nanostructure. Students will develop an understanding of how to plan and evaluate a sequence of processing methods required to realize a complex nanostructured device. The subject will also survey current and emerging applications of nanomaterials including nanofluidics, optoelectronics and bio/medical sensing devices.
