    16 Jun 2020 | | Contributor(s):: kim Grady, Jim Marti (editor), Deb Newberry (editor), Rodfal Alberto Rodriguez (editor), María Teresa Rivera (editor), Nano-Link Center for Nanotechnology Education

    Este módulo le presenta a los estudiantes la nanotecnología, procesos y métodos que están siendo probados por la industria para preparar productos y sistemas cementosos fuertes y livianos. El módulo lleva al estudiante a través del procesamiento de un...

  4. Surface Area to Volume Ratio

    16 Apr 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Nano-Link Center for Nanotechnology Education, Deb Newberry, Billie Copley

    This simple activity conveys one of the most profound aspects of Nanoscience – that for a given volume of material the total surface area increases non-linearly as the volume is divided into smaller and smaller pieces. This concept is being applied to creating better batteries and...

  5. Nanocrete

    06 Feb 2020 | | Contributor(s):: kim Grady, James Marti (editor), Deb Newberry (editor), Nano-Link Center for Nanotechnology Education

    This module introduces students to the nanotechnologies, processes, and methods being tested by industry to prepare strong and lightweight cementitious products and systems. The module takes the learner through processing a material (called microgrinding or powder milling) to reduce its size...

  6. Aerogels

    05 Feb 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Carol Bouvier, James J Marti, Deb Newberry, Nano-Link Center for Nanotechnology Education

    This module introduces aerogels, nicknamed “blue smoke.” Using exploratory activities this module introduces the nano structure of aerogels and the resulting extreme physical properties exhibited such as: thermal conductivity, transparency, and impact resistance. These properties...

  7. Nanocellulose

    05 Feb 2020 | | Contributor(s):: kim Grady, Richard Wilkosz (editor), Nano-Link Center for Nanotechnology Education

    This module presents the nanotechnologies, processes, and methods being developed to produce strong and stiff cellulose nanofibers. The module is designed to take the student through processing a material (called feed stock or substrate) to break down and...

  8. Surface Area Calculator

    25 Jul 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Julian C Umeh, Thomas A Manz

    Calculates the average surface of nano-porous materials
