The course is under way of essential convergence of the nano-bio-info fields in nanoscale. The lectures are focused on the characterization of nanostructures, growth of fractals and nanostructures and self-assembly of nanostructures, top-down and bottom-up processes, nanomaterials like nanotubes and graphene, application in nano-electro-mechanical systems, new materials, medicine, new sources of energy, and bio-inspired nano-structures like atificial tissues.

Study targets:

The aim of the course nanotechnology is comprehension of current nanotechnologies for the inspiration of a new kind of solution of technological problems and for the better communication with professionals in other fields.
