Abstract

Introduction to Nano Science and Technology

This new elective course is intended to be a gateway for the senior and graduate students to the range of special graduate courses in nanoscience and technology for engineers. The course consists of topics in fundamental nanoscale science, plus an overview of areas in nanotechnology.

Part I: Concepts in Nanoscale Science

- Below the continuum: quantum mechanics

- Statistics of small ensembles: molecular transport and thermodynamics

- Constitutive description of materials: continuum solid mechanics

- Nanoscale momentum and energy transfer: ballistic and diffusive transport

- Surface and interface interactions: adhesion, surface tension, lubrication

- Collective phenomena and temporal-spatial scales



Part II: Primer on Nanotechnology

- Nanophase materials: design, synthesis and characterization

- Nanodevice thermal and fluidic management

- Nanoscale sensing, nanometrology and actuation

- Nanosystem energy conversion

- Nanomanufacturing: challenges and opportunities

- Nanoscale biomimetic devices and systems
