Introduction Schedule Reading

 

"Nanotechnology is a group of emerging technologies in which the structure of matter is controlled at the nanometer scale, the scale of small numbers of atoms, to produce novel materials and devices that have useful and unique properties. Some of these technologies impose only limited control of structure at the nanometer scale, but they are already in use, producing useful products. They are also being further developed to produce even more sophisticated products in which the structure of matter is more precisely controlled."  -- Foresight Nanotech Institute

 

Running four weeks over summer, this course studies the techniques and scientific principles underlying control of matter at the nanometer scale.  Lead instructors Miguel F. Aznar and Shaowei Chen are joined by Teacher Fellow Don Freitas, TAs Doug Marks and Bruce Phebus, and guest lecturers.  The course is an intensive introduction and has been designed for bright, highly-motivated students willing to focus four weeks of their lives on a vast field.  Lectures will provide an overview of the field and introduce areas of advanced research.  Readings will prepare for discussions as well as cover areas unaddressed in lecture.  Students will use an advanced tool for the design, simulation and analysis of atomically precise molecular machine systems: NanoEngineer-1.
