À propos du cours

Nanotechnology and nanosensors are broad, interdisciplinary areas that encompass (bio)chemistry, physics, biology, materials science, electrical engineering and more. The present course will provide a survey on some of the fundamental principles behind nanotechnology and nanomaterials and their vital role in novel sensing properties and applications. The course will discuss interesting interdisciplinary scientific and engineering knowledge at the nanoscale to understand fundamental physical differences at the nanosensors. By the end of the course, students will understand the fabrication, characterization, and manipulation of nanomaterials, nanosensors, and how they can be exploited for new applications. Also, students will apply their knowledge of nanotechnology and nanosensors to a topic of personal interest in this course. ---------------- COURSE OBJECTIVES The course main objective is to enhance critical, creative, and innovative thinking. The course encourages multicultural group work, constructing international 'thinking tanks' for the creation of new ideas. Throughout the course, you will be asked to reflect upon your learning, think "out of the box", and suggest creative ideas. The course is set to encourage the understanding of: 1. The importance of nanoscale materials for sensing applications. 2. Approaches used for characterizing sensors based nanomaterials. 3. Approaches used for tailoring nanomaterials for a specific sensing application. 4. Metallic and semiconductor nanoparticles. 5. Organic and inorganic nanotubes and nanowires. 6. Optical, mechanical and chemical sensors based on nanomaterials. 7. Hybrid nanomaterial-based sensors. ---------------- We recommend that you read the following supplementary reading materials: -Jiří Janata, Principles of Chemical Sensors, Springer, 2d Edition (1989). -Roger George Jackson, Novel Sensors and Sensing, CRC Press (2004). _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Teaching Team About Professor Haick Hossam Professor Hossam Haick is an expert in the field of nanotechnology, nanosensors, and non-invasive disease diagnosis.

This course is a good start for those who want to lean about the applications of nanotechnology in the development of nanosensors. More so, the course is delivered in a manner that is easily understood by the general audience even if the student has little background on nanotechnology. In the future, I suggest that all reference journals/articles/citations used throughout the course be compiled in a Google Folder to allow the students to access them easily. Also, I suggest to develop another supplementary material/s which will fill in the concepts that are not discussed in detail.

Though the course and syllabus was quite good and interesting. the course should have covered more on industrial automation and nano sensors application but it seems to me that Professor Dr. Hossam was reciting the video lecture. it would be more fascinating if the professor would have explained the important concepts in more detail. still though the course was very informative. i thoroughly enjoyed in learning and exploring this course.

The course contents were really informative and well delivered. Maybe in the future you could add more practical examples of nanosensors and the detailed description of how each sensor works. But as for introductory level the course was really good.

par Tim R

I passed everything quite fast. But at the end you have to make a mini project, what I did. Unfortunately I got evaluated by two instead of three referees, which means one person can block you completely to pass. Additionally you need to have 80% (32 points), which also means if they give you 3 points in all categories you're not gonna pass. This is not well thought at all.

In particular if I only get comments from the referees like "good" or "nicely written".

So I got 60% in the end and should redo the mini project? That's not gonna happen! What a waste of time if untrained people evaluate you!

Very poor just like reading slides.
