Deposition Overview for Microsystems - Participant Guide
This learning module is an overview of the various deposition processes used in the manufacture of micro-sized devices or MEMS. Processes covered include thermal oxidation, chemical vapor deposition (CVD) and physical vapor deposition (PVD).
Learning about Surface Area and Volume Using "Spaghetti and Meatballs for All!"
05 Apr 2016 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Joyce Allen
The purpose of this lesson is to help students extend their knowledge of area, perimeter, and volume to include surface area. The understanding of these concepts begin in the elementary grades and helps students understand events such as why a hot potato cools down quicker when it is spread out in smaller pieces and why a cell is triggered to divide. This understanding is even more important when students begin to understand the micro and nano scales in middle and high school.
Small Scale Stenciling: Mask Lab
05 Apr 2016 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Marilyn Garza
This lab is analogous with some nanofabrication processes. This lab will help students understand some of the challenges encountered while making semiconductor chips and waveguides, both of which are found in electronic circuits.
The Effects of Gold and Silver Nanoparticles on Brine Shrimp: A Toxicology Study
05 Apr 2016 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Sharon Haldeman Mierhofer, NNCI Nano
This lab is designed to help students understand the following: the interdisciplinary fields of science, a practical application of chemistry in the real world, and the need to carefully conduct experiments and evaluate data in a collaborative environment. In this experiment, students will compare the toxicity of different concentrations of nanoparticle suspensions on brine shrimp, along with controls, to perform toxicity assays and data analysis.

Reproducing DFT calculations of Al2O3/GaAs interface structure and Fermi level pinning
18 Mar 2015 | Presentation Materials | Contributor(s): Alejandro Strachan
The goal of this resource is to demonstrate how to reproduce the results of the following research paper using the nanoMATERIALS SeqQuest DFT simulation tool on nanoHUB. In addition to reproducing the paper's results, users can run variations of the simulation to explore the physics and conduct their own research. Hegde, G., Strachan, A., & Klimeck, G. (2011). Role of surface orientation on atomic layer deposited Al2O3/GaAs interface structure and...

Exploration of the Oxidation Rate of Silicon Wafers via Simulation
04 Nov 2014 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Tanya Faltens
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.
Exploring Thin Film Interference Colors through Simulation
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...
