This subject contains two complementary strands. The first deals with methods for producing nanostructures, nanostructured materials and nanoscale devices, using deposition, growth and self-assembling processes. The second uses real-world examples to demonstrate how the unique properties of these materials can be tailored for a wide range of applications from novel building materials and medical prothestics to the next generation of electronic devices.
