The purpose of this module is to introduce metal-carbon nanocomposites used for creating nanodevices with controllable parameters. This module forms the ability to define properties of substances in a nanocrystalline state (structure, electronic nanocrystal structure, electric, magnetic, optical and mechanical properties); the ability to define substance properties as a function of various parameters taking into account quantum-size effects in a nanocrystalline state.
Students are expected to study the theory of a solid with the use of quantum mechanics for describing a substance in a nanocrystalline state; features of physical and chemical properties of a substance in a nanocrystalline state; the main substance types in a nanocrystalline state and their properties (structure, electronic structure of nanocrystals, electric, magnetic, optical, mechanical properties); physical and chemical theory of nanoparticles; kinetic regularities for calculating the nanomaterial synthesis; kinetic regularities, mathematical thermodynamics methods for modelling the processes of nanomaterial synthesis; defining and calculating parameters of nanoparticle synthesis (quasi-equilibrium, diffusive and kinetic stages); tendencies and perspectives of the developments in the area of micro and nanoelectronics.
