Course Description
The course will be targeted at undergraduate students on their early stage of education. The major goals and objectives are to provide second year undergraduate students with knowledge and understanding of nanoelectronics as an important interdisciplinary subject. Through the examples, exercises, and educational Java applets the course will cover electromagnetic waves and quantum mechanics including the quantum-mechanical origin of the electrical and optical properties of materials and nanostructures, chemically-directed assembly of nanostructures, biomolecules, traditional and nontraditional methods of nanolithography, interactions between electronic and optical properties, as well as the forefront topics such as organic heterostructures, nanotubes, and quantum computing. The course was developed and offered for the first time in Spring 2005.
