This innovative taught, 1-year fulltime higher degree course aims to train a new generation of scientists and engineers in the emerging field of Nanoscience.
Current research topics include Chemical and Physical Properties of Colloidal or Nanoscale Metals; Hydrogen Storage in Solids; Transparent Conducting Metals; Thin Film Materials.
The group is based in the Department of Materials and studies the three main forms of sp2 carbon nanomaterials: Fullerenes, Nanotubes and Graphene. Their interest is in developing nanostructures with unique quantum properties that have potential in electronic, photonic, and spin-based technologies.
This advanced modular course is delivered by leading scientists and experts in this rapidly developing field and has been specifically designed for those who would value a part-time modular learning structure, for example those in full-time employment, both in the UK and overseas. The MSc is designed to be completed part-time, normally over a two- to three-year period, and so provides a path to career development that is flexible and recognised within academia and industry. The programme comprises three online modules exploring the fundamentals of science and materials characterisation at the nanoscale, three intensive five-day face-to-face modules describing the clinical and commercial application of such science, and a piece of original lab-based research leading to the submission of a dissertation.
The group focuses on the optical and electronic properties of solid state nanostructures for applications such as optoelectronics devices, quantum information processing and photovoltaics.
The course consists of three modules: The Wider Context of Nanotechnology; The Fundamental Science of Nanotechnology; Fundamental Characterisation for Nanotechnology.
The Postgraduate Certificate in Nanotechnology is a unique online course which is taken part time. The course is ideally suited to people who are in full-time employment who seek to gain an academic qualification in the exciting field of nanotechnology. It is taken predominantly online, meaning that it is accessible to anyone in the world with Internet access.
The research interests of the Quantum Optoelectronics Group include: Time-resolved Spectroscopy of Nanostructures; Quantum Optics; Wide Bandgap Semiconductors; Quantum Hall effect; Near-field Optical Microscopy; Photonic Bandgap Materials; High Tc Superconductors.
NanoLAB is a center of activities in Nanoscale Science and Engineering within the Department of Engineering Materials at the University of Sheffield. They are dealing with Nanomanipulation in confined spaces (e.g. SEM and TEM), as well as the processing, structuring and characterisation of various nanomaterials.
The U. of Sheffield's new campus includes two prestigious new centres, the Kroto Research Institute, and the Nanoscience and Technology Centre.
