Nanotechnology - 125NT Spring 2008 TR 2:00-3:15 Girv 2120 Instructor : Sumita Pennathur Email: sumita@engineering.ucsb.edu Tel: 805-893-5510 Office: Engr II 2330 Office Hours: Thursday 3:30-5pm Required Text : Rogers, Pennathur, Adams “Nanotechnology: Understanding Small Systems”, 1 st Edition, CRC Press 2008 Course Description : This course introduces the basic concepts needed in order to pursue a research field in nanotechnology. First, a basic understanding of what nanoscale phenomenon entails will be introduced, along with important scaling laws needed to truly understand what is going on at such a small scale. Next, individual subjects at the nanoscale will be introduced, including nanomechanics, nanomaterials, nanophotonics, nanoelectronics, nanofluidics, nano heat transfer and nanobiotechnology. For each subject, the differences of nanoscale behavior will be stressed, as well as real-world examples. In every case, comparing nanoscale systems to macroscale systems reveals the complex and fundamental differences between phenomena at different scales and uncovers the specific challenges posed by nanotechnology.
