INTRODUCTION COURSE FACILITATORThis module starts by defining nanotechnology and Assoc. Prof. Dr. Zainovia Lockman didsurveying on the status of the technology at the her undergraduate work in materialsmoment. Then, it focuses on the most important science and engineering at Imperialfundamental component that enables College London, UK. She graduatednanotechnology: nanomaterials. Nanotechnology with a first class Hons. in 1999. Shecan be defined as any technology done on a received her PhD from Imperialnanoscale that has applications in the real world. College on electronic materials focusing on template material forThere is currently an extraordinary amount of high temperature superconductor and had alsointerest in nanotechnology as such technology has involved in magnesium diborides. Upon completionenormous consequences on the design and of her PhD, Dr Zainovia spent six months working as aengineering of everything from common consumer post-doctoral research assistance at Imperial Collegeproducts like cosmetics, textile and building to more then continued working on synthesis andsophisticated nanosystems that support enormous characterisations of various nanostructured electronicapplications in electronics, information technology, oxides at University of Cambridge, UK for a year.medicine, biology, energy, automotive, aerospaceand other industries.
