Introduction to Nanotechnology

Posted on March 12, 2006

Foothill College will offer a course in nanotechnology for students and working professionals who want an introduction to the subject. This course, surveying the emerging field of nanotechnology, is intended for a multidisciplinary audience with a variety of backgrounds. Students will be introduced to the underlying principles and theory relevant at the nanoscale dimension. After completion of the course, students should have a broad understanding of the industry and its potential and be familiar with current and future applications in materials, biology, physics, chemistry, computing, electronics, energy, medicine, and a variety of consumer markets. This course is the first of a sequence of 11 nano-related courses (in materials, fabrication, surfaces, and bio) to be offered at Foothill College, applicable to a certificate program in nanotechnology.

Application and registration deadline is April 5, 2006. (Late registration is available with instructor's consent)

Registration information here

Classes meet Tuesday evening from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.

Classes run from April 10 through June 30, 2006

Application information is available here

Course # Engr 76, Call # 1964 is physical and # 1965 is online

On-Line versus Physical Course Sections:
Students are welcome to register for the on-line or physical course section. Students registered for the on-line section are welcome to attend the lectures (physical section) at their convenience. Students registered for the physical section have the opportunity for one hour of hands-on experience on Foothill's *new* Atomic Force Microscope (AFM).

Course requirements:
College level science, e.g., chemistry, physics, and biology, or equivalent is recommended. Familiarity with web searching, especially for peer-reviewed articles, is essential. Desire to explore new technologies related to a particular domain, such as electronics, energy, medicine, etc., is a key success factor.

Topics to include:

  • Introduction to the practice and discipline of nanotechnology
  • Scientific principles of nanotechnology and the emergence of properties at the nanoscale dimension.
  • Carbon Nanotube Technologies (CNT)
  • MEMS and NEMS - Micro/Nano Electro Mechanical Systems
  • Nanofabrication
  • Polymers and organic molecules
  • Surface and colloid chemistry
  • Thin film applications
  • Semiconductors and Nanoelectronics
  • Technical challenges to nanotechnology
  • History and possible future trends of nanotechnology
  • Societal and technology issues that may impede the adoption of nanotechnology
  • Career opportunities in nanotechnology
