  1. Carbon Nanotube Counter

    08 Aug 2018 | Contributor(s):: Quinn Lennemann

    Carbon Nanotube Counter (CNT Counter) is a program that can count the density of Carbon Nanotubes in microscope scans. The program supports JPEG and TIFF images from both Scanning Electron Microscopes (SEMs) and Atomic Force Microscopes (AFMs). This program contains both an automatic mode and a...

  2. Silver Nanowire Synthesis and Characterization

    12 Dec 2017 | Contributor(s):: NACK Network

    Silver nanowires are synthesized and characterized using a remote Scanning Electron Microscope provided by the Remotely Accessible Instruments in Nanotechnology (RAIN) Network.

  3. Determination of Percent Oxygen in Air

    05 Dec 2017 | Contributor(s):: Jared Ashcroft, NACK Network, Brandon Rodriguez, Isabel Bojanini, Ashley Min, Melanie Hacopian

    The percent oxygen in air was determined using the reaction of steel wool with oxygen gas. Using a remotely accessible instrument provided by the RAIN Network, images and elemental composition of the steel wool and oxidized steel wool was obtained for use in chemical identification of steel wool...

  4. Geology Mineral Lab

    05 Dec 2017 | Contributor(s):: Jared Ashcroft, NACK Network, Brandon Rodriguez, Joel Monroy, Randy Flores

    A laboratory that involves using Geology/Chemistry multidisciplinary lab techniques to determine the identity of an unknown mineral. The Remotely Accessible Instruments in Nanotechnology (RAIN) Network is utilized to help confirm identity of mineral using a remotely accessible Scanning Electron...

  5. Taking a Closer Look at Objects

    11 Jan 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Georgia Institute of Technology

    For students to understand their world they often need to use tools to gather information.  Some tools will help them see parts of their surrounding world that they would otherwise miss. These tools include magnifying glasses and microscopes.    The lesson can be conducted as...

  6. Powers of Ten with the Blue Morpho Butterfly

    09 Jan 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Nancy Healy, Marilyn Garza

    This activity is designed to help students understand the concept of scale and magnification when examining a Blue Morpho butterfly wing. The activity requires the use of a scanning electron microscope (SEM) but images are provided if there is no access to an SEM.

  7. Seeing Nano: Using Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) to View Nano-size Objects

    02 Dec 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Samantha Andrews

    Nano-size objects are smaller than the wavelength of light and because of this they cannot be viewed with a light microscope.  Special tools are needed to see nanoscale objects, one of which is the scanning electron microscope. This activity will have students explore the types of images...

  8. [Illinois] An Introduction to Scanning Electron Microscopy and Focused Ion Beam

    18 Aug 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Matthew Bresin

  9. Local Anodic Oxidation

    25 Mar 2014 | | Contributor(s):: Sitaram R Natekar

    Video describing a typical Local Anodic Oxidation process and some data trends showing how certain parameters influence oxide height on a specimen of Gallium Arsenide

  10. Corrosion Mechanisms in Magnetic Recording Media

    29 Jul 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Demczyk

    This presentation describes the corrosion process in longitudinal and perpendicular recording media, based upon electron and scanning probe microscopic analysis.
