Title: Amazing Creatures with Nanoscale Features
Url: http://www.cneu.psu.edu/activities/Amy/index.html
Publisher: National Center for Nanotechnology Applications and Career Knowledge
Pennsylvania State University
Description: This animation is an introduction to microscopy, scale, and applications of nanoscale properties. It introduces some of the tools that are used by scientists to visualize samples that are smaller than what we can see with our eyes. This includes the optical microscope, scanning electron microscope, and the atomic force microscope. In this animation, you will take a closer look at a butterfly wing at different magnifications and see features at the nanoscale that give the butterfly unique properties. Then, you will learn how scientists and engineers are able to mimic these structures through engineering techniques.
