Who’s the course suitable for?
This course will be of interest to physical science graduates looking to work in the field of nanoscience. It’s also suitable for those with an industrial background as a further training opportunity and a way of gaining insights into topics at the forefront of academic research.
This course explores the frontiers of science on the nanoscale. It provides a strong grounding in basic nanoscience before progressing to advanced topics.
Taught classes have been developed from the many years of nanoscience research at the University in areas such as:
- nanoscale imaging
- nanoparticle fabrication and functionalisation
- chemical physics
- computational modelling of the nanoworld
Two semesters of formal teaching are followed by a three-month intensive project.
- Research project
Following the taught classes, you’ll undertake a research intensive project in a relevant nanoscience topic.
The projects take place primarily in research labs located in the University’s physical science departments. There are some opportunities for relevant industrial placements.
This course is run by the Department of Physics. The department’s facilities include:
- photophysics lab with world-leading instrumentation for fluorescence lifetime, spectra, microscopy, imaging and sensing
- a scanning electron microscopy suite for analysis of hard and soft matter
- the Ultrafast Chemical Physics lab with state-of-the-art femtosecond laser systems for multi-dimensional IR spectroscopy
- access to top-of-the-range facilities for high-performance computing
- industry standard cleanroom in the Institute of Photonics
