CHEM 6070

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2014-2015.

Chem 6070 is a one semester introductory course on the chemistry and physics of nanoscale materials. The main goal of CHEM 6070 is to provide a solid background (both to experimentalists and theorists) in the science of nanoscale materials, a research field that has been extremely active for more than twenty years. After discussing simplified versions of quantum mechanics, themodynamics, and surface science, we will learn about the structures and properties of well-known nanoscale materials, including nanocrystals, nanowires, carbon nanotubes, and graphene. The intended audience is first year graduate students and upper level undergraduate students in Chemistry and other fields, including A&EP and Materials/Chemical/Electrical/Mechanical Engineering. No previous exposure to quantum mechanics or necessary mathematical skills will be assumed, even though the majority of students took undergraduate level quantum mechanics and/or thermodynamics before. The course is open to undergraduate students who already took physical chemistry courses (CHEM 3890/CHEM 3900 or equivalents).

When Offered Fall.

Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: undergraduate inorganic chemistry (or equivalent) or permission of instructor.
