Virtual Lab: SPM Piezoelectric Crystals
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 Mark Peveril (B.S. 03) and John C. Bean, in collaboration with David Korty (B.S. 03) who developed the companion page on SPM operation. The technical staff of Veeco - Digital Instruments, including Richard Goodheart, provided generous technical assistance.
Since 2005, visitors to WeCanFigureThisOut.org websites have viewed 22,371,399 webpages and documents.
