The Fundamental Characterisation for Nanotechnology course provides a justification for materials characterisation, and a framework for considering strategic and tactical issues. It also gives an overview of the most common techniques and methodologies available to determine the nature and composition of nanoparticles (both organic and inorganic), thin films and nano-structures.

In addition to the course material and online tutorials, the course incorporates interactive team-projects, whereby iterative 'proposals' are presented to experts, who then provide feedback and guidance for further development. The course takes place online and includes a residential weekend in Oxford where students have an opportunity to see the latest characterisation methods at the University of Oxford's Begbroke Science Park.
