Content of the course
This course gives a broad overview on properties and fabrication processes of nano-materials. Especially mechanical, optical, magnetic, and electric properties are taught. Phases, phase transformations, and melting as function of the particle size are discussed in detail. This is always done in view of technical applications. Therefore, examples, such as nanofluids, superparamagnetic cooling, self-cleaning surfaces, or nanomotors, introducing to the wide field of nanotechnology are presented. Additionally, the criteria for economic successful technical
applications will be explained. Each participant has the chance to ask questions important for his company.
Who should attend?
This course is directed to employees of small and medium sized companies, intending to improve their products by the application of nanomaterials or are determined to develop new ones based on nanomaterials. The second group to attend the course are new co-workers of companies, universities or research institutes who want to shorten the time to get the necessary knowledge on nanomaterials or those who want to broaden their knowledge in this group of materials. Within three days, the participants of this course learn more and obtain a wider view as compared to a few month of tedious searching and studying literature. The participants may acquire an official certificate (2 ECTS credits) of the Graz University of Technology
The instructor, Prof. Dr. Dieter Vollath, is Author of the first textbook on Nanomaterials with great reviews.
Registration fee including board & lodging 1450 €.
Besides the course, the registration fee includes the printed documents and one copy of the textbook “Nanomaterials“ by Dieter Vollath. Additionally, full board in the hotel “ Villa Excelsior“, Bad Gastein, is included.
