Course Aim
The aim is to understand the basic principles for nanostructured materials and relative merits of different techniques for the production of nanostructures.

The course will cover nanostructured materials and phenomena occurring when the length scale of the constituents are in the nanometer range. Emphasis will be put on interface phenomena since nanostructured materials contain a large fraction interfaces. The course will give examples and potentials for the future of nanotechnology. Generally applicable techniques for the preparation of bulk nanostructured materials, thin films, patterned nanostructures such as sol-gel, thin film and self-assembling techniques will be discussed as well as high spatial resolution techniques for the characterisation of nanostructures.

Each course occasion´s language and form is stated and appear on the course page on Luleå University of Technology's website.
Lectures, seminars and presentation at final seminar-exam.

If there is a decision on special educational support, in accordance with the Guideline Student's rights and obligations at Luleå University of Technology, an adapted or alternative form of examination can be provided.
Written report and seminar-exam.
