Teaching methods

Project work


The course focuses on analysis of nanostructure and properties of carbon materials with applications in nanotechnology. In addition to fundamental analysis nanostructure and properties of traditional carbon materials (graphite, diamond) the attention is focused mainly to new carbon nanomaterials (fullerenes, fullerides, fullerites, nanotubular forms, porous activated carbon and soot). For individual groups of materials are given their potential and current application.
