We Can Figure This Out.org
Virtual Lab: Scanning Probe Microscopes
University of Virginia
PROJECT OVERVIEW: This "Virtual Lab" website was developed by John C. Bean. It began under a grant from the National Science Foundation's CCLI program, and grew under subsequent NIRT, MRSEC and NUE awards. It has now been combined with Bean's Nanoscience and Sustainable Energy websites to form WeCanFigureThisOut.org (about / contact).
SOFTWARE TOOLS: The Virtual Lab's animations were created using the program "3D Studio MAX." The website is built upon PHP programming calling upon MySQL databases.
PAGE CREDITS: This page was created by David Korty (B.S. 03) and John C. Bean, in collaboration with Mark Peveril (B.S. 03) who developed the companion page on piezoelectrics. The technical staff of Veeco - Digital Instruments, including Richard Goodheart, provided generous technical assistance.
Since 2005, visitors to WeCanFigureThisOut.org websites have viewed 16,671,165 webpages and documents.
