2020 - Magnetic Nanoparticles: Fundamentals and Applications

graphical summary

Logo FU Berlin
Lecture: pre-recorded video lessons
Seminar: Friday, 09.15 - 10.00h
Online office hour: upon request

Content: After an introduction to nanomagnetism and its occurence in nature, this lecture will give an overview of recent research on today’s and future applications e.g. in medical theranostics, environmental care, and technology. In more detail, it will cover the following topics:

  • Superparamagnetism and magnetic relaxation
  • Ferrofluids
  • Biomagnetism and magnetoreception
  • Targeted drug delivery and hyperthermia cancer treatment
  • Water purification
  • High-density data storage devices

.

Target Group: Students in the Master course “Physics”. Basic knowledge in solid state physics and quantum mechanics is required on a Bachelor-degree level. A bief review of the basics of magnetism will be given in the lecture. The lecture and accompanying practise seminar constitute the module “Modern Methods in Experimental Physics A”.

Credit points: 5 ECTS points

Lecture: Lectures comprise of a weekly video lecture, which is uploaded Monday evening at latest and is accompanied by a short online test with comprehensive questions and 1-2 exercises, which will be discussed in the practise seminar (see below). The purpose of the online test is (i) students can easily check their learning progress by themselves and (ii) the lecturer will see if more explanations or help is needed and can react accordingly. Online tests do not enter the grade in any form.

Practise seminar: Active participation in the online discussions is obligatory, which implies regular attendance to the online seminar. Solutions of exercises are presented by the students, comprehensive questions of the weekly online test as well as from online forum are discussed. Successful completion of the whole module includes, in addition, passing the examination.

Examinations: Depending on the measures against the novel Corona virus, there will be either a written exam on July 14th (day of the last lecture), 8.30h - 10.00h or 30-minutes oral exams via video conference. More details will be announced later on Blackboard.
