Characterisation of Nanobiostructures


Prerequisite/Recommended prerequisite for participation in the module

The module builds on knowledge obtained by the project on NB1 (1st semester).

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

The project is designed to cover a broad range of topics. It can be a rather more theoretical or experimental project dealing with all aspects relevant for manufacturing and characterization of biological/organic nanostructures.

Learning objectives


• Must have knowledge about methods and tools used for production and characterization of biological/organic nanostructures
• Must be able to understand the fundamental concepts behind the methods and tools used for production and characterization of biological/organic nanostructures


• Must be able to produce biological/organic nanostructures and must be able to investigate their properties by using different methods and tools
• Must be able to evaluate the different methods used for production and characterization of nano(bio)structures


• Must have obtained the skills to produce and characterize biological/organic nanostructures by using different tools

Type of instruction
