Introduction to Nanoscience and Nanotechnology
- One-page Small Project: Engineering Applications of Nanowires/Nanotubes
The purpose of this project is to use the knowledge you have learned in the class on
nanowires/nanotubes toward engineering applications. Your one-page project report will include
(1) a schematic diagram of your structure/device/system,
(2) brief explanation on the uniqueness of your structure/device/system,
and (3) assumptions you may have to make in order to claim the functionality in (2).
You are encouraged to do a different design (a new nano structure of your own)
and your grade will be judged on the effort and innovation you put into the design.
- Final Project: Design and Analysis of Nano Structure/Device/System
The purpose of this project proposal is to exercise your knowledge and imagination of nanoscience and nanotechnology toward engineering applications with detailed justifications.
You will need to draw a diagram of your nanostructures to illustrate your concept
and specific applications into nanoscience and nanotechnology.
You can continue working on the small project by using
Or you can change your topic to have different nanostructures such as
nanofibers, quantum dots or other nanostructures.
You are encouraged to use new concept, design new nanostructures.
Reports that only discuss things we have covered in the class generally
get lower grades.
are in the last week of the class.
