Lectures are focused on contemporary research which is developing fast at this time. Available instruments allow both analysis of materials at the atomic scale and preparation of advanced two- and threedimensional objects composed of exactly deposited atoms and molecules. As many of topics lectured here are extended in other lecture subjects, mutual connection between individual topics is emphasized here. Attention is also paid to possibility how to combine individual research areas to reach specific aims.

Student should be able to:

  • describe fundamentals of intermolecular interactions
  • discuss examples of the functional materials preparation based on physical approaches and supramolecular chemistry
  • propose the scheme of functional nanomaterials for absorbtion of electromagnetic radiation, catalysis and tissue engineering applications.
