Course Summary

This course will focus on the how to experimentally realize and  probe quantum materials and related devices where the small size plays a crucial role in determining their properties and behaviours.   The fundamental aim is to provide the students with a working knowledge of contemporary experimental nanophysics.  The course explains how nanostructures can be fabricated for desired outcomes and how the physical phenomena such as quantization and quantum coherence can be probed.
