Nanomaterials and Interfaces
This is a course focusing on understanding formation and behaviour of nanomaterials. The course aims at providing the students a solid understanding on surface and interfacial processes. On the course, you will learn why bulk and nanomaterials behave
differently based on their atomic and nanoscale features. The course consists of lecture series, different types of exercise sessions, poster project and exam. The poster is a compulsory part of the course and includes pitching, preparation of poster
abstract and of course the poster sessions where the posters are presented.
Welcome to learn!
