    30 Sep 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Tanya Faltens

    These are step-by-step instructions for creating simulations of carbon nanostructures:- buckly ball- carbon nanotubes- graphene sheetsThese instructions will allow teachers to run simulations that students can use along with, or instead of, building 3D models of structures.In NanoDays 2013 at...

  2. ABACUS: Test for Crystal Viewer Tool

    05 Aug 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck

    The objective of this test is to give an idea to a self-learning students or to instructors in the case this test is used in a classroom the level of understanding of this topic when students have gone through the learning material, worked exercises and have completed the assignments and the...

  3. Crystal Viewer Lab Exercise

    28 Jun 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck, Parijat Sengupta, Dragica Vasileska

    A central problem in the investigation of material properties involves the examination of the underlying blocks that aggregate to form macroscopic bodies. These underlying blocs own a definite arrangement that is repeated in three dimensions to give the crystal structure. We will try to explore...

  4. Crystal Structures - Packing Efficiency Exercise

    15 Jun 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck

    Consider the most efficient way of packing together equal-sized spheres and stacking close-packed atomic planes in three dimensions. For example, if plane A lies beneath plane B, there are two possible ways of placing an additional atom on top of layer B. If an additional layer was placed...

  5. Crystal Structures

    08 Jun 2010 | | Contributor(s):: David K. Ferry, Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck

    In mineralogy and crystallography, a crystal structure is a unique arrangement of atoms in a crystal. A crystal structure is composed of a basis, a set of atoms arranged in a particular way, and a lattice. The basis is located upon the points of a lattice spanned by lattice vectors, which is an...

  6. Illinois ECE 440: Introduction to Crystal Properties Homework

    28 Jan 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Mohamed Mohamed

    This homework Assignment covers basic introduction to Material Properties and Crystal Structures.

  7. Exercise: Crystal Lattices

    29 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck

    This exercise helps the student better understand various types of crystal lattices, in particular diamond and zinc-blende and also helps in better understanding of the miller indicies. The results to some of these problems can be easily arrived at by using the crystal viewer...
