Teaching:

  • Physics of Nanoclusters
    Atomic nanoclusters are among the main objects of nanotechnology. Understanding of their formation rules and connection of atomic and electronic structure with the observed properties is a key staring point for the following design of new advanced nanomaterials. The course “Physics of Nanoclusters" (10 ECTS) is intended for Master students. It is a part of a Master program “Nanoscale structure of materials“ developed in Southern Federal University (Rostov-on-Don, Russia). The goal of the course “Physics of nanoclusters" is to give students the comprehensive background in the field of nanoclusters properties connected to quantum size effects as well as introduce main theoretical and modern experimental tools for the study of nanoclusters. The course covers the following main topics: • Basic concepts and definitions • Correlation of atomic and electronic structure with observed physical properties of nanoclusters • Theoretical methods for the analysis of nanocluster atomic and electronic structure • Experimental techniques for the study of nanocluster atomic and electronic structure Program 1.
