PHYS 5820 - Introduction to Nanophysics

An introduction to rapidly-evolving ideas in nanophysics. Covers the principles involved in the fabrication of nanosystems and in the measurement of phenomena on the nanoscale. Concepts necessary to appreciate applications in such areas as nano-electronics, nano-magnetism, nano-mechanics and nano-optics, are discussed. Prerequisite: One course each in undergraduate-level quantum mechanics and statistical physics or instructor permission; knowledge of introductory-level wave mechanics and statistical mechanics; applications of Schroedinger equation, Bose-Einstein and Fermi-Dirac distributions.
