CEAC 556 - Nanomaterials, Nanotechnologies and Design
Within this context, a primary goal of this course is to provide information for better understanding how to use nanomaterials and nanotechnologies effectively. The course starts with definitions, nontechnical overviews of the general characteristics of nanomaterials and provides examples of ways in which nanomaterials can be found in both nature and in an historical context. Then, processes for synthesizing and characterizing nanomaterials are described and size effects and other defining characteristics of nanomaterials are explored. The lecture then turns to design or application-oriented considerations. These sections broadly explore a range of nanomaterial and nanotechnology applications from specific product or industry perspectives—nanotextiles, nanopaints, nanosealants, nanotechnologies for self- cleaning, antimicrobial or self-healing, and others.
