Descriere curs

Programul Academic Cambridge/Oxford Online Study include 8 cursuri / prelegeri online, sustinute de un profesor universitar de la University of Cambridge sau University of Oxford cu tematica Nanotechnology & electric vehicle Battery Technologies:

Program description:

We will take a look at Nanotechnology in everyday use, gain an understanding of the basic underpinning principles and see where this exciting field is heading.  We will start by looking at the origins of nanotechnology, deep in the mists of time when science thought it had all the answers, and then it became clear from one discovery after another that this was not the case.  From Quantum mechanics to relativity, science was shaken at its roots over a century ago, and this led to the interest in all things small.  We will then look at what nanotechnology really is, and how and why the properties of nanometer-sized objects are fundamentally different to larger things, and how we can take advantage of this.  We will look at specific examples of nanotechnology applications in healthcare, electronics, textiles, defence, automotive industry, fuels, food, etc.  We will then delve into looking at electric vehicle battery technologies, and will look at Tesla’s new Silicon-nanowire anode technology.

Example Tutor:

Professor Colm Durkan
Position: Professor of Nanoengineering science, Fellow of Girton College, University of Cambridge
Biography: Colm Durkan is professor of Nanoengineering science at the University of Cambridge. He obtained his degree and PhD in Physics from Trinity College Dublin during which time he designed and constructed the first scanning near-field optical microscope (SNOM) in the country, and made significant advances in our understanding of the mechanisms behind image formation in such systems. He then spent a year in Konstanz, Germany working in collaboration with ZEISS on the construction of a commercial microscope system.
In 1997 he moved to the University of Cambridge, initially as a research associate in the Nanoscale Science group, and since 2000, as a faculty member. During this time he has led a research group consisting of around 10 members, been head of the Nanoscience centre for two years (2009-2010), published over 100 papers, given over 100 talks, written a successful textbook on Nanoelectronics, and developed several scanning-probe microscopes and new measurement techniques.  He has also written a popular science book on Nanotechnology "Size really does matter - the nanotechnology revolution" that appeared in press in March 2019.
Colm has secured funding from and collaborated with several leading companies as well as government funding agencies, to the tune of over £3 Million in the past few years. He lectures and teaches in electronics, electromagnetism, quantum mechanics and nanotechnology. He is on the editorial board of Ultramicroscopy and Imaging & Microscopy, and is a fellow of Girton College, Cambridge and the Institute of Physics.

 Research Interests: My group carries out research at the heart of Nanoscience. We develop novel imaging and measurement techniques for probing the properties of matter at the nanometre scale. We also explore the effect of nanoscale patterning on the electrical and magnetic properties of materials, and are working on the development of molecular electronic device architectures.
