This is a combination hands-on and simulation activity that will teach middle school students about the function and importance of modeling and simulations in science and engineering while learning about three important carbon nanostructures: graphene, bucky balls, and carbon nanotubes. The activity uses the Crystal Viewer simulation tool in nanoHUB, and has been used with many different ages of student at NanoDays at the Birck Nanotechnology Center at Purdue.

This resource will guide instructors and independent learners through the process of simulating the reflections off of a thin film using the S4: Stanford Stratified Structure Solver simulation tool.  Examples of a freely standing thin film (a soap bubble) and a thin film of silicon dioxide on a silicon wafer are presented.  Some reference to thin film interference and the colors average humans perceive when viewing different energies (or wavelengths) of light are...

This teaching resource is designed for instructors who would like to introduce exploration through simulation into their lessons on silicon oxidation.  Step-by-step instructions are provided for running the process lab oxidation simulation, and guiding questions are provided that should help students discover important trends in the oxidation rate when different process parameters are changed.

This document is an updated (Fall 2015) sophomore materials science and engineering tensile testing laboratory handout that introduces students to the atomic-level processes that are responsible for plastic deformation. By performing standard tensile tests on a ductile metal in conjunction with molecular dynamics (MD) simulations, the goal is to help students understand the relationship between macroscopic plastic behavior and the underlying atomic-level mechanisms that involve dislocation…

This document describes how to generate and download simulation output files from the Nanomaterial Mechanics Explorer on nanoHUB and view them locally using OVITO.

This can be particularly useful for more advanced manipulations of the trajectory files, and for sharing files with others, such as in a classroom environment.

This is a step-by-step guide that describes how to draw planes through a structure, and then view the structure, cut by the planes.

This exercise may be helpful to understand the different symmetries observed on different planes in Si, and the different oxidation rates for different faces.

Overview

This learning activity guides students through the visualization of three-dimensional crystal structures using the software package Ovito. Students work in groups manipulating crystal structures on their personal computers, ranking the planar densities of the (100), (110), and (111) planes in face-centered cubic (FCC) and NaCl crystal structures. The activity can be performed in a 50 minute lecture session, in a lab or discussion section, or as homework.

Ovito is an…

In 2004, Dakota County Technical College started a 2 year, AAS degree Nanoscience Technician program. This program has always involved an aspect of computer simulations, both in a specific Computer Simulation class and as a part of several other classes such as the nanoelectronics and materials science classes. This presentation will discuss not only how nanoHUB simulations have been used in this 2 year program but how their use has evolved and expanded over the last decade.

This instructional video is part 1 in a two part series.  It provides an
introduction to computational modeling, including motivation for studying
this topic.  The Schrödinger Equation is reviewed and its relationship to
Density Functional Theory (DFT) is explained.  The Kohn-Sham Method for
creating density functionals is presented, and the SIESTA simulation code
is introduced.

Blockchain Development Services

Today the buzzword is decentralization. Blockchain Technology enables digital information to be distributed and not copied, thereby creating a backbone for a new digital age. The global spending on blockchain development is estimated to be $2.1 billion, with the growth of the blockchain software space projected at a CAGR of 48% by 2022. The blockchain is an immutable ledger for recording not only financial transactions but can virtually record anything of value.
