Physics of Nanostructures

The module provides an introduction to the scientific foundations of the function, fabrication and characterization of nano-structured materials and nano-devices. The topics covered are: reviews of quantum mechanics in reduced dimensions and solid state physics, common techniques for nano-structure fabrication and characterization, transport in low-D systems, optoelectronics of nanostructures, nanotubes and nanowires, clusters and nano-crystallites, molecular electronics, magnetic nano-structures. This module is designed for postgraduate students who are interested in nanoscience and nanotechnology research and applications.
