Through the modular “knowledge nodes,” we expect to help the undergraduate students and the general public better understand why, in some cases, it makes sense to miniaturize a device for reasons beyond economics, volume, and weight.

In addition to lecture notes and Power Point slideshows, this site features multimedia presentations and videos of principles of micro and nano devices, materials, and processes over disparate time and length scales.

This website will greatly enhance the inter-institutional teaching effort to cover broad applications using nanotechnologies for imaging and therapy in medicines.

The technological platform is readily extendable to other engineering classes in the broad areas of advanced material, product design, and fabrication at disparate scales, and multi-scale simulations.
