Nanoscale Characterization for the Classroom

  • D.L. Carroll


This report describes the development of a semester course in ‘nano-scale characterization’. The interdisciplinary course is opened to both advanced undergraduate and graduate students with a standard undergraduate preparation in Materials Science, Chemistry, or Physics. The approach is formal rather than the typical ‘research seminar’ and has a laboratory component.
