Nanotechnology is the study of the world at a scale that is larger than the atom but smaller than a bacteria. At this scale common materials have uncommon properties.
In this course, students will engage in a range of activities to gain an understanding of the nano-scale and establish the difference between bulk properties and nano scale properties.
Students will explore a wide range of new materials such as shape memory alloys, allotropes of carbon, hydrophobic surfaces and liquid crystals. Links are drawn between the properties of these materials and their application in health sciences, engineering and alternative energy production.
By the end of this course students will have:
Students will be required to complete on average 1 hour of homework per week for the duration of this course.
For successful completion of this unit students will be required to submit the following tasks:
