View Resource Nanotechnology Invention and Design: Phase Changes, Energy, and Crystals

This lab, presented by the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network, students will "explore how energy exchanges lead to solid-state phase changes at the macroscale and explore the applications of this nanotechnology." Additionally, students will have the opportunity to examine "various energy inputs on the crystal lattice of a smart material, Nitinol, and then invites students to become...

View Resource Crystals

This page contains four documents explaining crystals. The topic is covered at an advanced level in relation to nanotechnology and requires background knowledge in eight grade science. A powerpoint with illustrations and instructor guide containing activities are included to aid in teaching this subject. Additionally, links to related videos, a lab handout, and discussion questions are...

View Resource Crystallography Learning Module

This page from the Southwest Center for Microsystems Education features a learning module which provides a solid overview of crystallography. Additionally, activities are included on the Miller Index, Breaking Wafers, and creating an Origami Crystal. A participant guide, instructor guide (both in PDF format) and a comprehensive powerpoint presentation are included. Users are encouraged to...

View Resource The Peptaibol Database

This online database from the Crystallography Department at Birkbeck College, London "deals primarily with naturally occurring peptides, generally these have a fungal origin." The search function is easy to use; data can be queried by name, family, or residue motif. Another useful feature is the Peptaibol Picture Gallery, which includes images of several peptaibols.

View Resource Snowflakes and Snow Crystals

Professor Kenneth Libbrecht at Caltech University is very interested in crystal growth and pattern formation in ice. So interested in fact, he went ahead and created this lovely website (last reviewed in the November 27, 2002 Scout Report) that documents the very wide, and very interesting world, of "snowflakes, snow crystals, and other ice phenomena." First-time visitors should look over the...
