Practicals and Nanointegration

Our students perform more than 30 practicals over an intense 7 week period at the start of their course. These practicals are held in different departments / research groups all across the University in small groups of around 3 students each.

Students get hands-on training on cutting-edge techniques for nano research through these practicals, in addition to becoming closely aware of research going on across the University. The practicals for 2018-19 include:

  1. AFM 1 – basics
  2. AFM 2 – advanced
  3. Scalable Nanofabrication 1  -   Inverse Opal Electrode
  4. Scalable Nanofabrication 2 -  R2R Nanoimprint
  5. Optical microscopy
  6. Confocal microscopy
  7. Superresolution microscopy
  8. Raman spectroscopy
  9. Microfluidics 1
  10. Microfluidics 2
  11. Nanocrystal Batch Synthesis and Characterisation
  12. Solar cell fabrication
  13. Solar Cell characterisation
  14. Nanoparticle Flow Synthesis and Characterisation
  15. NP imaging with TEM
  16. DNA Origami
  17. Devices 1- e-beam lithography
  18. Devices 2 - Graphene Growth and Transfer
  19. Devices 3 - FIB
  20. Cyclic Voltammetry
  21. Electrodeposition + Nanoelectrochemistry
  22. ESEM and EDS
  23. High Resolution TEM
  24. Multidimensional Data Analysis in Electron Microscopy
