The course is under way of essential convergence of the nano-bio-info fields in nanoscale. The lectures are focused on the characterization of nanostructures, growth of fractals and nanostructures and self-assembly of nanostructures, top-down and bottom-up processes, nanomaterials like nanotubes and graphene, application in nano-electro-mechanical systems, new materials, medicine, new sources of energy, and bio-inspired nano-structures like atificial tissues.Effects of the nanoscale onto sintering processes and plasma treatmets of materials are discussed.


The course is based on the secondary knowledge of mathematics and natural sciences - physics, chemistry and biology.
