This 4-year course is based on physics but includes content from chemistry and biology to give an important appreciation of how all the sciences have new effects to be observed and new applications to be discovered.
This 4/5-year course is based on physics but includes content from chemistry and biology to give an important appreciation of how all the sciences have new effects to be observed and new applications to be discovered.
The Organophotonics Research Group has three separate nanotechnology projects at the moment. They involve composite structures of II-IV semiconductor nanocrystals or nanotubes in organic polymer matrices for electroluminescent displays or photovoltaic cells.
Combining interdisciplinary teaching with cutting edge research, this flagship course will train the next generation of nanotechnologists. The course is associated with the London Centre for Nanotechnology, a joint venture between Imperial College London and UCL, allowing a wider choice of collaborative opportunities.
The main research topics are: Nanomagnetic Logic Devices; Nanoscale Hall-probe Devices; Technology for Preventing Forgery; Smart Nanoparticles for Targeted Cancer Treatment; Fundamental Properties of Nanoscale Magnetism.
Gain experience of research in the rapidly developing interdisciplinary areas of biophotonics, nanomaterials and nanophotonics, X-ray physics and computational modelling. Consists of taught components plus a research project. Ideal preparation for a higher physics degree or careers in scientific research or the financial sector.
The project examines recent developments in nanotechnology policy and regulation in China, India, Taiwan and the European Union. Based on field research and interviews with regulatory experts, the project team has produced detailed studies of each of the four cases.
Regulating Nanotechnologies in the EU and US is a collaborative research project involving researchers from LSE, Chatham House, Environmental Law Institute and The Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. Its goal is to investigate the regulatory challenges posed by nanotechnologies and to assess the effectiveness of existing approaches on both sides of the Atlantic.
