Abstract : This lecture will focus on the techniques currently in use or being developed for measuring nano-particles and nanotechnology-based products from all aspects including, geometries, forms and conformity as well as functional characteristics such as absorption, charge or porosity. The lecture will also aim to address the systems/response based measurements of such materials and novel nano-composites. In this context, the lecture's content will be as follows; Challenges in Characterisation of nano-materials Tools and equipment for in-process assessment (Scanning Electron Microscopes / Scanning Probe Microscopes etc) Tools and equipment for product characterisation (Optical / laser diffraction etc) Techniques for functional characterisation (chemical analysis, surface assessment / mapping etc) Future directions.
