This course covers the structure of materials at the nanometer scale. Structure includes the periodic arrangements of atoms and ions in crystalline solids, the amorphous networks of atoms, ions, and molecules in glassy materials, and the molecular structure of polymeric and biological materials. The typical means of characterizing nanostructure are also reviewed. Finally, the course will introduce the structure of novel nanomaterials like nanotubes, buckyballs and self assembled monolayers.

The course pre-requisites are being modified.


Old:  C- or better in MSE 201


New:  Prerequisite: C or better in [MSE 201 or MSE 203 or BME 203]


The change reflects an update in the MSE curriculum that requires MSE students to earn a C or better in MSE 201, MSE 203, or BME 203.
