  1. Clinical Laboratory Techniques and Microtechnology Instructor Guides

    01 Feb 2018 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s):: Southwest Center for Microsystems Education (SCME)

    This learning module is an overview of how microtechnology is used for standard clinical laboratory tests.  It covers the advantages and challenges of taking clinical tests out of the laboratory to the point of care (POC).  An activity allows you to dig deeper into a specific test or...

  2. Remotely Accessible Instruments in Nanotechnology (RAIN) Labs

    30 Jan 2018 | Series | Contributor(s):: Jared Ashcroft, NACK Network

    Remotely Accessible Instruments in Nanotechnology (RAIN) is a community of educators that aims to bring advanced technologies into K-12 and college classrooms via remote access. RAIN's mission is to facilitate the study of nanoscale science by lowering barriers for instructors to deliver...

  3. Elementary school - module 5: Scaling my community

    30 Jan 2018 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s):: Richy Tomy

    This lesson introduces the use of scale to examine images. Particularly students will begin with familiar locations or areas generated using satellite maps (e.g. Google maps) to relate scale and magnification of a particular image. What happens to the scale when we zoom in on an image? What if...

  8. Integrated Photonic and Plasmonic Signal Transduction for Micro- and Nanomechanical Sensing

    08 Feb 2018 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s):: Vladimir Aksyuk

    Measuring unknown quantities by coupling them to mechanical motion dates back at least 5000 years: simple equal-arm balances used for weighing goods in ancient Egypt are in fact mechanical measurement tools, with motion detected optically by the human eye. Modern microfabrication enables...

  11. Mesoscopic Optics

    29 Jan 2018 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s):: Hui Cao

    In applications, optical scattering is the main obstacle to imaging or sending information through turbid media. Recent developments of adaptive wavefront shaping in optics enabled imaging and focusing of light through opaque samples. By selective coupling to open or closed channels, we varied...

  19. Quantum Control Over Diamond Spins with a Mechanical Resonator

    24 Jan 2018 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s):: Gregory David Fuchs

    I will describe our experiments to coherently couple NV center spins to gigahertz-frequency mechanical resonators using crystal lattice strain. In high-quality diamond mechanical resonators, we demonstrate coherent Rabi oscillations of NV center spins driven by mechanical motion instead of an...

  20. The Microtechnology of Pacemakers Learning Module

    22 Jan 2018 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s):: Southwest Center for Microsystems Education (SCME)

    This module is an overview of how the heart works and how the technology of cardiac pacemakers has advanced from being an external, motor driven device to being an internal (in vivo) device that goes unnoticed by the user.  The why, where, who, and how of pacemakers is discussed.  An...
