    Last year, we used the RTD tool on the nanohub for our Nanoelectronics class. I assigned a mid-term exam based on the RTD analysis and one of the students took it further and wrote a paper on the subject (nanoHUB is referenced prominently in the paper). It can be one of the many success stories of the nanoHUB one can tell the NSF about.

    Thank you for your help on the RTD tool.
