Graphene, nanogold, solar panels and medicine are just a few of the many topics associated with nanotechnology. Nanotechnology is the very exciting technology on the very small, atomic and molecular scale. It has already made a tremendous impact on everyday life and is set to become more and more important in the future.
A range of topics will be covered from an introduction to quantum chemistry to techniques for looking and manipulating things on the atomic scale. The link between nanotechnology and biomimetics will also be explored.
There will be an opportunity to do a little experimental work at home.
