NS 203 - Characterization of Nanotechnology Structures and Materials

Credit Hours: 3.0

This course will introduce students to the following topics: characterizing Nanotechnology materials with light or physical properties; photon-based spectroscopies; characterization based on electron beams; probe characterization techniques; and particle based spectroscopies.

Course Outcomes
At the completion of the course, the student will be able to:

  • demonstrate an understanding of light based characterization and spectroscopies;
  • demonstrate an understanding of electron based characterization and spectroscopies;
  • apply industry-standard photon-based, electron-based, probe microscopy, chemical  and mechanical characterization equipment to Nanotechnology materials; and
  • effectively and safely work as a member of technical team in laboratory setting.
