Nanomanufacturing and Hierarchical Materials

ENG ME 576

Nanoscale materials are often celebrated as having unique properties that exceed their bulk counterparts. However, leveraging such nanoscale materials as components in bulk materials is challenging as it requires (1) making enough material to be relevant on bulk scales and (2) incorporating nanomaterials at a bulk scale in amannerso as to maximize their effect. The structural ordering of these nanomaterials can range from disordered, as in the case of nanocomposites, to highly ordered, as is generally the case in metamaterials. This course is designed to communicate he state-of-the-art, challenges, and opportunities of constructing hierarchical materials with nanoscale constituents. Same as ENG MS 576. Students may not receive credits for both.
