Fundamental Characterisation of Nanotechnology - Mon 25 Apr to Sun 3 Jul 2016

The Fundamental Characterisation for Nanotechnology course provides a justification for materials characterisation, and a framework for considering strategic and tactical issues. It also gives an overview of the most common techniques and methodologies available to determine the nature and composition of nanoparticles (both organic and inorganic), thin films and nanostructures.

The course presents generic descriptions of techniques and methodologies, together with representative case studies. In addition to the course material and online tutorials, the course incorporates interactive team projects, whereby iterative 'proposals' are presented to experts, who then provide feedback and guidance for further development. The course includes a residential weekend in Oxford where students have an opportunity to see the latest characterisation methods at the University of Oxford's Begbroke Science Park.

Materials characterisation is the use of external techniques to probe into the internal structure and properties of a material or object. This course will be of interest to you if you are faced with questions such as:

  • What are the attributes of a given material?
  • Are the attributes of the material those intended, were promised, or were led to expect?
  • Is our chosen materials processing route, or device fabrication route, working as intended, or as it did yesterday?

In answering these questions, the course takes a trouble-shooting approach to nanoparticle characterisation, beginning with the material or object:

  1. Identifying the information that is required;
  2. Formulating an approach to obtaining that information;
  3. Making a rational choice of techniques and methodologies;
  4. Giving due regard to efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

The course also introduces the key methods and approaches used in materials characterisation for nanotechnology and offers guidance as to when and how each technique is best used.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
