Content of the course
This course gives a broad overview on properties and fabrication processes of nano-materials. Especially mechanical, optical, magnetic, and electric properties are taught. Phases, phase transformations, and related phenomena as function of the particle size are discussed in detail. This is always done in view of technical applications. Therefore, examples, such as nanofluids, superparamagnetic cooling, self-cleaning surfaces, or nanomotors, introducing to the wide field of nanotechnology are presented. Additionally, the criteria for economic successful technical applications will be explained. Each participant has the chance to ask questions important to his company.
Who should attend?
This course is directed to employees of small and medium-sized companies, intending to improve their products by the application of nanomaterials or are determined to develop new ones based on nanomaterials. The second group to attend the course are new co-workers of companies, universities or research institutes who want to shorten the time to get the necessary knowledge on nanomaterials or those who want to broaden their knowledge in this group of materials.
