To acquaint methodological approach and experimental practice of the planning, realisation and analysis of experiments insulin state physics with particular emphasis on nano materials and nanotechnology. Use of fundamental techniques for the synthesis of nanostructured materials and of the spectroscopic techniques for the characterisation of the electronic, optical, and magnetic properties of nano materials. Introduction to rapid prototyping and 3D printing of micro devices.
