David S. Ginger Jr
Primarily for doctoral candidates in physical chemistry. A discussion of topics selected from active research fields. See department for instructor and the topic during any particular quarter.
This CR/NC course consists of student seminars on current research topics in nanoscience and nanotechnology presented by University of Washington graduate students. Each student speaker will give a 20-minute presentation and answer questions during the following 5 minutes. This will allow 2 student speakers to present at each weekly 50-minute class meeting. The seminars will be aimed at an interdisciplinary audience of science and engineering graduate students. The course is open to graduate as well as undergraduate students. To receive credit, the students registered for the class must attend all the seminars. Although giving a presentation is not required to receive credit, it is strongly recommended, since this will give the student speaker an opportunity to share and discuss her/his research with fellow students and to practice and hone her/his presentation skills in front of an audience. The schedule for talks will be organized by the President and Vice-president of the Nanotechnology Student Association (NSA) at UW. Offered Winterquarter only. 1 cr.
