Subject Description
The subject is dedicated to electronic, energy and biomedical based applications and devices. The subject aims to develop future workforces skilled in application of modern devices in related industries including batteries, supercapacitors, solar cells, superconducting magnets, magnetic/spintronic devices, nanogenerator etc. The course covers the basics of the electronic/spintronic, energy and materials for biomedical based nanotechnologies and relies on the substantial in-house expertise, laboratories and manufacturing technologies at AIIM. The course also demonstrates the application of various materials characterisation techniques [such as thermo-electric evaluation X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (XPS), gas adsorption-desorption measurement (pore size distribution curves), advanced scanning tunnelling microscopy (STM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-AES), and thermal analyses techniques such as Differential scanning calorimetry and thermogravimetric analyses (DSC/TGA)] to evaluate important physico-chemical properties and performance of covered materials and devices.

Subject Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this subject, students will be able to:
1. Understand the diverse factors and characteristics of advanced functional materials and their importance in design, modelling and device development.
2. Identify the principles of device design and development and correlate this with the properties of the studied materials.
3. Understand the working principles of AIIM's state-of-the-art characterization techniques and gain hands-on experience.
4. Analyse the data generated from the characterization techniques and explain the selection of right materials to be used for device development.
5. Apply the use of appropriate measurement and experimental techniques for determining properties of fabricated devices and to write clear reports detailing the results.
