NNO 2300

Nanotech Applications - Ceramics

3 Credits

Prerequisite: CHE 1000 or CHE 1510, and NNO 1050; or consent of instructor

This course introduces students to the fundamentals of ceramic materials, including inorganic and non-metallic solid materials, and advanced ceramics fabricated from nono-sized powders. Mechanical, magnetic, electrical, thermal, and optical properties of macro- and nano-sized materials will be compared. Students should be able to understand the preparation and manufacturing of these materials, and applications such as in structured ceramics, electrical, magnetic, coatings, construction, and biomedical fields from this course.
