View Resource MIT OpenCourseWare: Introduction to Solid State Chemistry

Looking to delve into the world of solid-state chemistry? Why not check out this excellent introduction to the subject, provided courtesy of MIT and their OpenCourseWare (OCW) initiative. This is not just an introduction to chemistry class; it's a "chemistry-centered class that integrates examples from the world around us, in the arts and humanities, the human stories behind the science, and...

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 Silicon Crystal Origami

This YouTube video, created by Southwest Center for Microsystems Education (SCME), is an animation which shows the viewer how to make an origami 3-D crystal from a template developed by Jack Judy at UCLA. Through this animation, "the 3-D crystal allows you to "see" the different planes of a silicon crystal, their Miller indices and some of their properties." This activity can be found in the ...

View Resource (100) Crystal Plane of Silicon

This animation, created by Southwest Center for Microsystems Education (SCME), "illustrates the crystal growth of silicon using a seed crystal (or unit cell) positioned to the (100) plane. The silicon crystal grows into a large ingot which is sliced into silicon wafers. To verify the (100) plane of the wafer, the wafer is broken or cleaved causing it to break at 90 degree angles." The supporting ...

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...
