Nano*High: Nature's Nasty Nanomachines: How Viruses Work, and How We Can Stop Them
25 Sep 2010 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Carolyn R. Bertozzi
The birth and growth of nanotechnology is only a few decades old, whereas Nature has been building nano-machines for millennia. Viruses are marvels of natural nano-engineering, but can pose a problem for human health. To combat these nano-machines, scientists are turning to recent developments in nanotechnology to prevent infection and cure disease.
Nano*High: X-rays, Lasers, and Molecular Movies
25 Sep 2010 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Roger W. Falcone
X-ray imaging is an excellent method to make visible what would normally be invisible - who hasn't had an X-ray at the doctor or dentist's office before? At the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, the Advanced Light Source is a gigantic X-ray imaging machine. Dr. Roger Falcone discusses X-ray tomography, is a method that uses these X-rays to produce three-dimensional images and movies of the smallest ...
Nano*High: Nanoscience for High School Students
02 Feb 2010 | Series | Contributor(s): Alexander S McLeod, Jeffrey B. Neaton, Jeffrey C Grossman
The Materials Sciences Division at the University of California's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory invites you and your students to Nano*High, a series of free Saturday morning lectures by UC Berkeley professors and LBNL senior scientists conducting research from nanoscience to molecular medicine, and climate change to astrophysics. 2009-2010 will be our seventh year of Nano*High. Last year over 900 students and their teachers attended at least one talk. Nano*High talks are aimed at all ...

Atomic-Scale Simulation Tools to Explore Energy Conversion and Storage Materials
Computational Nanoscience for Energy
15 Sep 2009 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Jeffrey C Grossman, Alexander S McLeod
Materials for energy conversion and storage can be greatly improved by taking advantage of unique effects that occur at the nanoscale. In many cases, these improvements are due to fundamental microscopic mechanisms that can be understood and predicted by cutting-edge simulation methods. This course will provide students with the fundamentals of computational problem-solving techniques that are used to elucidate the atomic-scale behavior of energy conversion and storage nano-materials.
