An introduction to nanomaterials, or matter with important structural features that are nanometers in size. A nanometer is very small-a billionth of a meter; a sugar molecule is only about 1 nm wide. Scientists and engineers are now building materials by manipulating atoms or groups of atoms. The course explores how materials with nanoscale features demonstrate novel and beneficial properties for energy applications. the growing energy demands of the planet require timely, if not urgent, innovative multidisciplinary solutions. These solutions require an informed citizenry knowledgeable about the various perspectives related to powering our planet. This course is a means to inform the non-scientist student about the physical science aspects of energy, nanomaterial solutions for our energy needs, along with some historical, economic, and environmental perspectives. The energy discussion provides a backdrop for our exploration of the structure and properties of nanomaterials. Special fee.
