FDP on Functional Nanomaterials | 19th - 20th Dec, 2011


Functional Nanomaterials - Synthesis & Characterization
19th – 20th December 2011

Organised by
School of Chemical & Biotechnology


The functional nanomaterials are the basis of newly emerging nanotechnologies for various device applications. in recent years, nanomaterials with various compositions and morphologies have been developed. These materials exhibit interesting properties, which have been utilized in the development of novel engineering, optical and electronic materials. 

The development of novel functional nanomaterials opens up the possibility of new applications in the fields of Science and Technology. The progress made in the fields of nanocrystals, nanofilms, nanoparticles, thin films, nanomedicines, nanocomposites, etc. indicate the possibility of controlling the structure et nanometer level in order to achieve the desired functional properties.

The faculty development programme focuses on "Synthesis and Characterization of Functional Nanomaterials”. The programme covers lectures on various topics by experts working on nanosensors, nanobiotechnology, optoelectronics materials, nanofluicis, nanocomposites, etc. and laboratory sessions on synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials
