Teaching middle school or high school students? Use these resources to help kids understand what nanotechnology is and how it may impact their lives. You might start by watching Mark Ratner's seminar A Gentle Introduction to Nanotechnology and Nanoscience. Check out the various animations that we have to explain nanoscience concepts. Try running a simple tool online, such as CNTbands.

Molecular Beam Epitaxy
4.0 out of 5 stars
16 Nov 2005 | Animations | Contributor(s): John C. Bean
Microelectronic devices are made by repeating two steps: 1) Depositing a thin uniform layer of material; 2) Then using a photographic process to pattern and remove unwanted areas of that layer.
Scanning Electron Microscope
This resource describes a scanning electron microscope (SEM). It includes detailed depictions of how the electron beam is focused and used to create hugely magnified images of experimental specimens.
Scanning Probe Microscope Piezoelectric Crystals
In this resource we disassemble the piezoelectric assembly of a scanning probe microscope. At its core is a white cylinder of the piezoelectric material. If you look closely, it has a granular...
Scanning Probe Microscope Operation
Scanning Probe Microscopes (SPMs) include Atomic Force Microscopes (AFMs) and Scanning Tunneling Microscopes (STMs or STEMs). They are the only instruments in widespread use that can actually...
Fabrication of a MOSFET within a Microprocessor

Nanotechnology is not just a topic for physicists, chemists, and engineers. Laura explains the important role of biologists in this field, and shows how they may help provide clues to molecular...
What is a Nanometer?
Join Laura and Martin on a wild ride through the milliworld and the microworld to reach the nanoworld. Along the way, they discover how small a nanometer truly is.
Feasibility of Molecular Manufacturing
15 Mar 2005 | Animations | Contributor(s): EPICS LSPM Team
Martin and Laura have an interesting debate about the feasibility of Molecular Manufacturing. Can molecular assemblers be developed to create new materials, new devices, and even macroscopic...
Nanomanufacturing: Top-Down and Bottom-Up
2.5 out of 5 stars
Martin presents an overview of nanomanufacturing techniques, explaining the difference between top-down and bottom-up approaches.
Scanning Probe Microscopes
Laura explains how scanning probe microscopes can be used to create images of small devices, molecules, and even atoms! A large-scale version of the scanning probe microscope is built out of...
