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.

I think the content of the course is super interesting, useful, ordered and I enjoyed it very much. I would like a lot to keep doing more courses related to nanotechnolgy and specially oriented to nanochemistry. I congrat the professor of the course for giving the opportunity to spread his knowledge and for making a very interesting course. Nevertheless, I have to say the english of the professor its a little bit hard to understand and some quices even have questions out of the content of the classes of a determined week.

Its a decent course for people looking for an overview into the field of nanotech. The course focuses more on characterisation and fabrication. The mini-project at the end is pretty exhaustive if one does it with full seriousness but it also opens doors to many other ideas. The lecturer seems monotonous but the content he covers is very comprehensive. So, all in all, its recommended for people who are serious about taking a little extra effort to know nanotech.

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.

par Maria K

The course was definitely very informative and interesting. Some of the quizzes seemed to cover only partially the material from the lecture, perhaps if there are more questions included, for example 20x, that would help the student to study and review more material. Assignment prompts were thoughtful and interesting. Looking forward to the second part!

Most interesting course and supports for career growth, crystal clear explanation leads to easy understanding about the concepts, helpful in preparation of interviews and competitive exams.

So Happy in completing this course

El curso es excelente, la información presentada es clara y concisa así como el orden de los temas. Sin embargo pienso que podría mejorarse con animaciones no solo leyendo el speech.
