Students acquire the understanding on the properties for unique shape of nanoparticles, which cause quantum size effect. Also students can learn applications of nanoparticle technologies in the field of environment and energy. In addition to the nanoparticles science and applications, students can study how to write strong patent in the field of nanoparticle industry.
Students acquire the basic knowledge on the properties of nanoparticles on the basis of solid state physics and quantum physics. Industrial applications of nanoparticles in the field of environment and energy are also presented. Further, students can study how to write strong patent to be a future R&D leader.
