Celdas Unitarias y Estructuras de Cristal (Unit Cells and Crystal Structures)
25 Apr 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Nano-Link Center for Nanotechnology Education, Kristi Jean, Deb Newberry (editor), Jim Marti (editor), Rodfal A. Rodríguez (editor), María T. Rivera (editor)
En este módulo, los estudiantes preparan una solución saturada con bórax, acetato de sodio y sulfato de cobre. Al secarse, cada cristal tendrá una forma diferente. La forma que observamos en un cristal (a escala macro) depende de cómo están arreglados...
Ice Cream Break with Nanoscience: Nucleations and Colloid Suspensions
06 Jan 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Raeanne L. Napoleon, Marilyn Garza, NNCI Nano
This lesson is designed to demonstrate how liquid nitrogen cools a mixture at such a rapid rate that it precipitates extremely fine ice crystals from a homogeneous mixture of cream and other ingredients. It is also designed to show how ice cream can be made smoother and creamier through...

Nanoscale Tensile Testing with Molecular Dynamics
21 Feb 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Sam Reeve, Alejandro Strachan
In this computational lab you will perform online molecular dynamics (MD) simulations through nanoHUB of single-crystal copper nanowires under uniaxial tension of varying orientations and analyze the results in order to: Observe how slip planes in single-crystal nanowires are formed and...
Dislocation Structure and Propagation with Molecular Dynamics
20 Feb 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Sam Reeve, Alejandro Strachan
In this computational lab you will learn about dislocations via online molecular dynamics (MD) simulations using nanoHUB. The simulations involve various types of dislocations in FCC and BCC crystals.
Ductile and Brittle Failure in Metals with Molecular Dynamics
In this computational lab you will perform online molecular dynamics (MD) simulations of nanoscale cracks under uniaxial tension through nanoHUB. Simulations with varying temperature and crystal structure will provide information to: Distinguish the atomistic mechanisms of ductile and...

3 min Research Talk: GUI for the Surface Evolver – Polycrystalline Grain Growth
31 Jan 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Kevin K Ngo
This talk summarizes how the the online simulation tool, GUI for the Surface Evolver, was created as well as how it will impact research in polycrystalline grain growth. Polycrystalline grains have surface energies and tensions associated with them that cause grain boundaries to move (grow).
3 min Research Talk: AFM And EBSD Cross-Comparison Analysis Tool
31 Jan 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Andrew Martin Krawec
This talk describes an approach to analyzing the crystal structure using data collected from AFM and EBSD scans to build an accurate image of the crystal structure and orientation in the ceramic
Unit Cells and Crystal Structures
27 Aug 2018 | | Contributor(s):: Kristi Jean, Deb Newberry (editor), James Marti (editor), Nano Link
In this module students create a saturated solutions using Borax and sodium acetate. Upon drying, each crystal will have a different shape. The shape at the macro level is driven by the arrangement of atoms. This repeating arrangement of atoms – which defines a crystal structure –...
