Analysis of Nanomaterials (NANO*02100)
Code and section: NANO*02100*01
Term: Winter 2013
Instructor: Xiaorong Qin
This course provides an in-depth study of the important instruments that have been developed to analyze nanostructured materials. Useful information that is derived from scattering processes involving X-rays, visible light, electrons, and neutrons will be studied. Microscopic techniques such as Atomic Force Microscopy will also be studied because of the nanoscale structural information that they can provide. The study of spectroscopic techniques also forms part of the course. The application of these instruments to lithographic production techniques is also developed.

|Assignments (Penalty for late submission 10% per day)||20%|
Not generally required. However, if you miss a TEST or EXAM, then you should see your College Counselor and get a note from him/her.
Collaboration versus Copying
You are encouraged to discuss with others as you learn the material and work on the assignments. However, the work you submit must be your own (your understanding written in your own way) and not a copy of someone else's work.
