Exercise using the "Particle-Wave Duality: an Animation" on nanoHUB as an introduction to an undergraduate quantum mechanics course.  A series of questions allow students to analyze what is happening in the 2-slit experiment and to make conclusions about the behavior and analysis of small particles at the nanoscale.


Dr. Stella Quinones is an Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) where she has been a faculty member for the past 17 years.  Her research areas include the effect of Zn doping on selective nanoscale CdTe deposition on CdTe(111), Si(100), Si(111) and Si(211) using a conventional close-spaced sublimation (CSS) technique for applications related to solar cells, x-ray imaging and infrared detectors, along with contributions to engineering education.
