Functional Nanostructures


Prerequisite/Recommended prerequisite for participation in the module

The module builds on knowledge obtained from project on NFM1.

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

This project module will give the student experience with advanced methods for creation of functional nanostructures. In addition, possible applications of the created nanostructures will be investigated

Learning objectives


Students who pass this module develop:
Knowledge on:
• Methods for creation of functional nanostructures
• Applications of functional nanostructures


Students who pass this module develop:
Skills in:
