  9. 9. Basis for Grade in the CourseYour grade in the course is based on 2 factors: 1) class attendance 2)grade earned on the paper assigned.
  10. 10. A 1-2 page paper in English is to be turned in to Prof. Hermann by the end of the last lecture. Both a hard copy and a digital copy emailed to allen.hermann@colorado.edu are required. This paper should be in your own words.The paper could contain one or more figures and/or tables. The subject matter should be either 1) a tutorial explaining clearly one topic from thiscourse (in greater detail than given in the course), or 2) a clear description of your own research related to the subject of this course.
  11. 11. Your grade will be calculated as follows:Attendance- 40% ( 5.71 % per class attended)Grade for paper- 60%

What is Nanotechnology?• Research and technology development at the atomic, molecular or macromolecular levels, in the length scale of approximately 1 - 100 nanometers.• Creating and using structures, devices and systems that have novel properties and functions because of their small and/or intermediate size.• Ability to control processes at a few nm-range for advanced material processing and manufacturing.

  25. 25. For absorption, energy of photon absorbed goes as 1/L2, smaller particle absorbs larger energy photon, who’s wavelengthis smaller (toward blue), and longer wavelength photons (toward red) are transmitted.
  26. 26. Figure 7.2. Solutions of quantum dots of varying size. Note the variation in color of each solution illustrating the particle size dependence of theoptical absorption for each sample. Note that the smaller particles are in the red solution (absorbs blue), and that the larger ones are in the blue (absorbs red).
  27. 27. For light scattering, the photon wavelength must besmaller than the particle size, and the smaller particles tend to scatter only the shorterwavelength photons (toward blue)
