Course Description

This course involves fundamental interactions of electrons, ions and photons to atoms, molecules and condensed matters, and practical applications for nanotechnology. Great emphases are on fundamental mechanisms of beam-solid interactions, characterization techniques, material synthesis and processing for quantum devices with quantum beam. Recent progress of related area of quantum beam will be also introduced in this course.


Coursework will be evaluated with attendance and report on subjects.

Course Goals

To provide students to understand fundamental interactions in quantum science.

Course Topics

Theme Class number of times Description
Interactions between quantum beams and solids 7 Interactions between quantum beams and solids are described with various formulas. Collisions with nucleus, electronic excitation, defect formation and energy loss will be discussed and related scientific topics, such as discovery of electron will be introduced.
Applications of quantum beams 7 The interactions of quantum beam are widely used for various applications. Material processing and analysis with quantum beams are essential in nanotechnology and quantum beams are also important for diagnostics of diseases and cancer therapy in medical field. Practical applications will be presented with recent progress and challenges.
Final examination and report 1 Evaluation will be given by the contents of the reports and quizzes of the subjects leaned in this course.
