The course focuses on processes, synthesis and characterization techniques of materials at the nanoscale. Nanotechnology is a quickly developing field and the course has a strong focus on understanding and highlighting cutting edge research in the field of nanotechnology. The course describes how physical processes and theories can be used to describe materials at the nanoscale, including new devices for electronic and energy applications. It also includes synthesis and characterization of such materials, with a main focus on carbon nanomaterials, such as fullerenes, carbon nanotubes and graphene but also on various types of metal and semiconductor nanoparticles.
90 credits including Solid State Physics, or equivalent. Swedish for basic eligibility for higher education programmes and English A/5. Requirements for Swedish only apply if the course is held in Swedish.
Applicants in some programs at Umeå University have guaranteed admission to this course. The number of places for a single course may therefore be limited.
