Completion Assessment + Examination
Language of teaching Czech
Extent of teaching 2+2s
The course is under way of essential convergence of the nano-bio-info fields in nanoscale. The lectures are focused on the characterization of nanostructures, growth of fractals and nanostructures and self-assembly of nanostructures, top-down and bottom-up processes, nanomaterials like nanotubes and graphene, application in nano-electro-mechanical systems, new materials, medicine, new sources of energy, and bio-inspired nano-structures like atificial tissues.Effects of the nanoscale onto sintering processes and plasma treatmets of materials are discussed.
Study targets
The aim of the course nanotechnology is comprehension of current nanotechnologies for the inspiration of a new kind of solution of technological problems and for the better communication with professionals in other fields.
