5. Recommended time/stage of studies for completion
An overview of research activities in Nanophysics and Nanochemistry in Kumpula Campus offered in the course is useful at the stage when a future career choice is to be made.
6. Term/teaching period when the course will be offered
The course is offered every year in the autumn during the second teaching period.
7. Scope of the course in credits
8. Teacher coordinating the course
9. Course learning outcomes
After completing the course you will have an understanding of:
- what is the nanoscience and what is its role in the modern society
- what are the branches of nanoscience in general and what branches are under research in Kumpula Campus
10. Course completion methods
The course is offered in form of scientific overview lectures given by the experts in each field presented during the course.
The 100% attendance is recommended as the lecture notes contain the slides on original research, inviting the students to have critical viewpoints and feedbacks.
The course is completed by submitting weekly short essays on every lecture, where the important aspects given by the lecturer and in the student's own opinion must be highlighted. The final examination is held at the end of the course.
The course "Basics of Nanoscience".
12. Recommended optional studies
Computational Nanoscience, Chemistry of thin films
13. Course content
- Atom-level methods to build and characterise the nanostructures
- Properties of nanoobjects: mechanical, electronic and magnetic, optical
- Physical and chemical methods to form nanoobjects: nanoparticles, nanoclusters, nanopillars/nanowires, nanofilms, bulk nanomaterials
- Carbon-based nanostructures
- Inorganic thin films
- Aerosol nanoparticles
14. Recommended and required literature
15. Activities and teaching methods in support of learning
Lectures are given two times a week for 7 weeks. An essay emphasising important and critical points is written after every lecture. The final exam is written at the end of the course.
16. Assessment practices and criteria, grading scale
The essays submitted by students are graded regularly. The final score can be used as a weighting factor up to 20% for the grade of the final exam. No returned esseys reduce the overall grade of the final exam by 20%.
17. Teaching language
