    1. Scope

    1.1 This document describes a procedure to provide the basic education of characterization methods for nanometer-scale materials, to be taught at an undergraduate college level. This education should be broad and include a suite of characterization methods to prepare an individual to work in various capacities within one of the many areas in nanotechnology research, development, or manufacturing. 1.2 This standard practice may be used to develop or evaluate an education program for characterization in the nanotechnology field. It provides listings of key methods that are relevant to such a program, with a minimum number of these methods to be taught as a requirement for such an education. This practice does not provide specific course material to be used in such a program.
