    09 Feb 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Southwest Center for Microsystems Education (SCME)

    This learning module introduces you to the microcantilever, its applications in micro and nanotechnologies, its use in sensor arrays, and how it works in both static and dynamic modes of operation.  There is a pre and post-test, four (4) informational units (PKs), and two (2)...

  7. Making a Liquid Crystal Thermometer

    06 Jan 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Rano Sidhu

    Liquid crystals are matter that has properties between those of a liquid and a solid. Liquid crystals may flow like a liquid but have crystals like a solid.colors of the objects are Color is the outcome of various light properties: absorption, refraction, or reflection. In the case of liquid...

  8. Mixtures and Nanotechnology

    09 Jan 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Joyce Palmer Allen

    The purpose of this unit is to help students make the connection that the classification of mixtures is based on the size of particles. This connects to two of the Big Ideas in Nanoscale Science and Engineering (Stevens, Sutherland, and Krajick 2009). The first is Size and Scale or factors...
