Nanomaterials with their specific properties for applications in biomedicine and electronics
The content of my lecture are the results of my research carried out in recent years and educational activities on the preservation of molecular matter condensed in nano-systems and their practical applications using their specific properties in biomedicine and electronics.

Nanotechnology allows manipulation of matter at the level of individual atoms and produces materials with new properties different from their counterparts in the solid body. During the lecture, current progress will be presented in the processes of production of metallic, semiconductor, magnetic and carbon based nanostructures and nanomaterials.

One of the important properties of nanotechnology is the ability to manipulate the electronic structure, mechanical properties and magnetic nanomaterials through changes in their ultrastructure, morphology and material composition. During the lecture I will present experimental methods developed in our laboratories for the creation and application of nanomaterials supporting early diagnostics and therapy of diseases as well as their application in electronics.
