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 systemsresponse based measurements of such materials and novel nano-composites. In this context, the lectures 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.
