Virtual Lab: Atomic Force Microscope (AFM)
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 John C. Bean and Angad Sachdeva with input from Dominik Brandlin of Nanosurf Inc., and from both Mark Flowers and Mike Mallamaci of Nanoscience Inc..
LEARN MORE: Additional technical information can be found on the Nanosurf and Nanoscience websites. These sites also include links to tutorials and animations prepared by other educators.
Since 2005, visitors to WeCanFigureThisOut.org websites have viewed 22,785,770 webpages and documents.
