On 13-15 March 2023, 10:00 - 12:00 in auditorium, Prof. Michael Giersig (IFTR PAS, foreign member of PAS) will give a series of lectures for PhD students of the specialisation "Nanotechnology in biomedicine". The lectures will be held in the auditorium of ILTSR PAS and are open, so all interested persons are cordially invited. Below is a description of the lecture topics. 

Nanostructured materials, or nanomaterials, refer to materials that have relevant dimensions on the nanometer length scales and reside in the mesoscopic regime between isolated atoms or molecules and bulk matter. These materials have unique physical and chemical properties that are distinctly different from bulk materials. Their size-dependent properties, their sensitivity to surface phenomena, and how they are spatially arranged present a significant challenge to our fundamental understanding of how these materials should behave. Intense interest in nanostructured materials   is also fueled   by   tremendous   economic and technological benefits anticipated from nanotechnology and nanodevices. Nanomaterials have demonstrated great potentials for applications in electronics.

In the proposed teaching course we will involve following key aspects:

  1. An introduction to Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology
  2. Example of nanomaterials synthesis:
    • Semiconductors; Metallic; Magnetic; Carbon based materials
    • 2D and 3D arrangement of particles by:
    • Electrophoresis; Magnetophoresis; Electrostatic Self-Assembly
  3. Characterization of nanomaterlials by:
    • X-ray
    • Optical methods (Spectroscopy)
  4. Applications in electronics an biomedicine
