Making Nano Work for Us

A 3.5 minute video giving an overview of nano: what it is, how it can be applied, and how we are working to bridge the gap between what we know and what we don't know in order to minimise and manage risk.

In this tutorial, I will present a brief overview of the ways that transmission electron microscopy can be used to characterize nanoscale materials. This tutorial will emphasize what TEM does well, as well where difficulties arise. In particular, I will discuss in an overview manner how diffraction, imaging and spectroscopy function in the TEM, and how these techniques can be combined to provide a detailed characterization of nanoscale structures. Some emphasis on sample preparation requirements, image artifacts and low sampling statistics will be detailed as well. I hope that at the end of this brief tutorial, you will have a better sense as to when the TEM might help you answer particular questions in your research.

NANOOZE - what is nano?

Nanooze is a place to hear about the latest exciting stuff in science and technology. What kind of stuff? Mostly discoveries about the world that is too small to see and making tiny things using  nanotechnology. Things like computer chips, the latest in fashion and even important stuff like tennis rackets. Nanooze was created for kids, so inside you will find interesting articles about what nanotechnology is and what it might mean to your future. Nanooze can be found on the web at www.nanooze.org or just ‘google’ ‘nanooze’. There is lots more there including interviews with real scientists, the latest in science
and even games!

Does an observer determine reality?  Can I use quantum mechanics to create my own reality?  Quantum mechanics takes us into the wild and wacky world of the really small where particles are waves, waves are particles, and the physical intuition we have from our everyday life doesn't seem to work. If we lived in Quantumland, we could sit in three chairs at once and even speed without getting a ticket.  Using everyday objects like a slinky, some dice, and soda pop cans, we'll uncover how quantum mechanics really works.
