  1. Thin Films

    27 Aug 2018 | Contributor(s):: Nano-Link

    In this module, students will learn about the optical properties of thin films. Students will perform an experiment where they will apply a thin film to a piece of card stock paper. The students can then observe the optical properties of the thin film.

  2. Unit Cells and Crystal Structures

    27 Aug 2018 | Contributor(s):: 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 – is...

  3. Ionization Potential of Small Molecules Using DFT

    27 Aug 2018 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s):: Alejandro Strachan

    Use DFT simulations to explore the ionization potential (energy required to remove an electron) in atoms and small molecules. Disclaimer: While very powerful, DFT makes well known approximations and the results obtained in this module are approximate.
