Course description and aims

Organic materials are unique due to their molecular structures and organizations compared with inorganic materials. Physics of the soft materials will be presented particularly from the viewpoints of physics in organic molecules and biomaterials.

Student learning outcomes

The aim of this lecture is to understand physics of organic molecules in nanoscale and how these are utilized in bio-nanotechnology. Especially, students will gain the knowledge of nanomaterials and biomolecules, and its applications in bio-sensing.

Keywords

nanomaterials, biomolecules, biosensing

Competencies that will be developed

Intercultural skills Communication skills Specialist skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills
