NANO 4210 - Nanoscience Research

Credits: 2

Prerequisites: NANO 4311 Physical Principles of Nanoscience, NANO 4312 Chemical/Biochemical Principles of Nanoscience, NANO 4313 Introduction to Material Science
The course is designed to provide a hands-on laboratory experience for Nanoscience majors. Students enrolled in this course will choose a research project and a faculty mentor. They will conduct laboratory research under the supervision of their mentor. They will present their mentor a Final Report which describes the work done and data collected during the project. Students are expected to spend a minimum of 5.5 hours per week in the laboratory, at times mutually agreed upon by student and mentor.

Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  1. Adhere to safe laboratory practices
  2. Prepare solutions of a specific concentration
  3. Use the instrumentation involved with his/her specific project
  4. Write up experiments in a laboratory notebook
  5. Use statistical and graphical software (Sigma Stat, Sigma Plot, Microsoft Excel)
  6. Describe the scientific theory behind their project
  7. Write a thorough research report
