The Kavli Institute of Nanoscience at Delft University of Technology studies new physics and exploits novel principles in nanostructured devices with a new functionality. The nanostructures vary from superconductors to biopolymers and are obtained from nature or fabricated with bottom-up methods (starting with atoms or molecules) or top-down techniques (such as electron-beam lithography).
The Institute consists of several research groups and a nanofabrication cleanroom facility. With a staff of 16 professors and over 90 PhD students and postdocs.
Besides participating in the Applied Physics MSc programme the department also participates in the MSc programme in NanoScience together with Leiden University and in the ErasmusMundus MSc programme in Nanoscience & Nanotechnology together with Leiden University, KU Leuven (Belgium), Chalmers University of Technology (Sweden) and TU Dresden (Germany).
Available NanoScience Courses
Advanced Statistical Mechanics (EN)
Ensemble theory; noninteracting classical and quantum systems; cluster expansion for interacting systems, many body quantum mechanics, phase transitions, scaling, renormalisation; nonequilibrium thermodynamics; Boltzmann transport equation
Mesoscopic Physics (EN)
Mesoscopic physics is the area of Solid State physics that covers the transition regime between macroscopic objects and the microscopic, atomic world.The main goal of the course is to introduce the physical concepts underlying the phenomena in this field.
Advanced solid state physics (EN)
This course is about the electronic properties of materials and contains lectures about scattering, transport in metals, phonons and superconductivity.
Quantum Information Processing (EN)
Quantum Information Processing aims at harnessing quantum physics to conceive and build devices that could dramatically exceed the capabilities of today's "classical" computation and communciation systems. In this course, we will introduce the basic concepts of this rapidly developing field.
