View Resource Quantum Dots

This lab, presented by the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network, covers the concept of behavior of particles on the nanoscale. Students will learn about exploring the absorption and reflection of light "based on energy levels that are determined by size and bonding arrangements of the materials." A Teacher Preparation Guide, Student Guide, a YouTube video, and Next Generation Science...

View Resource Synthesis and Characterization of CdSe Qunatum Dots

This lab, presented by the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network, students will "study how surfactant-based chemistry can be used to synthesize CdSe quantum dots and study how the size of the quantum dots can be controlled by varying reaction time." This lab will help students to understand the size and scale of nanoparticles using dots and considering the actions of electrons within a ...

View Resource Beer's Law Lab

The PhET project at the University of Colorado creates "fun, interactive, research-based simulations of physical phenomena." This particular one deals with Beer's Law. "The thicker the glass, the darker the brew, the less the light that passes through." Make colorful concentrated and dilute solutions and explore how much light they absorb and transmit using a virtual spectrophotometer! The...

View Resource Get the Lead Out! An Interdisciplinary Case Study

This interdisciplinary case study is intended to teach the nature of mining operations and their effect on the environment. Students will use atomic absorption spectroscopy to test for lead contamination in groundwater samples. The lesson would be useful for high school or lower level undergraduate students. The case study and teaching notes may be downloaded in PDF format. The site also includes...

View Resource Hydrogen Spectroscopy

Created by Dean Zollman of Kansas State University, this tutorial covers the topics of spectra and spectroscopy, focusing on the hydrogen atom. Questions are provided for students to explore the material, and interactive simulations are used for interactive investigations. A section devoted to the graphing of results is also included in the presentation. This resource is a part of the "Visual...
