SoSe 16 Nanophysics

On the nanometer scale many materials exhibit size-dependent electronic, optical, and magnetic properties, which are governed by quantum mechanical effects. In this lecture, we will discuss experimental techniques to explore some of these exciting phenomena and explain the physical concepts.

The exercises will comprise the discussion of recent literature related to the concepts explained in the lecture "Nanophysics".

You can find lecture notes and the exercise sheets here.
