ME 599: Nanomanufacturing
ME 599: Nanomanufacturing (Winter 2009, University of Michigan). Instructor: Professor John Hart. This course discusses the properties, synthesis, assembly and applications of nanostructures and nanostructured materials. This course presents how to make and assemble nanostructures - particularly nanotubes, nanowires, and nanoparticles - into devices and materials ranging from transistors to films, fibers, and structural composites. Emphasis is placed on understanding the unique properties of these building blocks, and how properties scale from the individual elements to bulk material architectures. Scalability is governed by the physical interactions among the structures, and the ability to manipulate and order nanostructures using chemical, mechanical, and electrical means.
