    7. Objectives, learning outcomes and obtained knowledge To study phenomena in organic and inorganic systems where the size of the structures are between a hundred and few million atoms (between 0.2 to 100 nm). The course has three main parts. The first part gives a theoretical background to the physics of nanosystems, including basic quantum mechanics and solid state physics and also problems related to downscaling. The second part, nanotechnology, discusses the physical properties of nanomaterials, their fabrication technologies and their application areas. The third part, nanometrology, introduces the nanoscale microscopy and spectroscopy methods.
