International Winter School for Graduate Students

The National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network (NNIN) and the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (IIT Kanpur) are jointly organising the first in a series of international winter schools in nanoscale science and engineering for Graduate Students. Twenty students from top universities from the USA and India will be attending the course. The subject of this year's course is "Organic Electronics and Optoelectronics". It will be taught by faculty drawn from United States and India.

The course consists of two teaching components - class and lab work, and an activity component - field work applying technology. The winter course is supported by the National Science Foundation, USA and the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur with the goal of fostering global awareness, knowledge sharing and cooperation among academics and future leaders.

The course is organized by Prof. Sandip Tiwari (Cornell University) and Prof. SSK Iyer (IIT, Kanpur). Based on the learning from this short course, future winter schools will be be held at different institutes in India on different topics related to nanotechnology.

Lectures and Labs for the Winter School

The lectures will cover the basic chemistry and physics related to organic semiconductor - explaining their electronic and optical properties. The devices and technologies related to optoelectronic devices will be covered in the latter part of the course.

In the afternoon, we will have simulation labs. Visits to relevant labs are also planned

On the last day of the lectures (13th December, 2008), we will hear from experts on energy in global landscape, organics and environment, research, develoPMent and technology in society, as well as the role and importance of ethics in the context of technology.
