Waves and Dancing Ferrofluid

This experiment is aimed to provide an understanding of how the particles act in changing magnetic field. If there is no magnetic field, ferromagnetic nanoparticles are random. When we applied magnetic field around the test tube, ferromagnetic nanoparticles respond the field and the magnetic moments of particles align with the magnetic field lines.

LED (Light Emitting Diodes)

This experiment explores the physical phenomenon of LEDs, how they operate, their unique features, together with the characteristics of light.  LEDs are environmentally friendly, ultra-efficient electronic (or semiconductor) lighting devices that emit cooler, softer and/or more natural light with relatively the least consumption of watts when electrical current passes through them.

Carbon Nanotubes

The carbon atom seems to be the most wonderful of all the elements in the periodic table. As well as being the basis of life, it is one of the most important building blocks of nanotechnology. Carbon nanotubes, composed of interlocking carbon atoms, are 1000 times thinner than human hair and can be 100 times stronger than steel. The amazing properties of carbon nanotubes provide many application areas.

Waveguide Fabrication by Sol-Gel

This experiment is aimed to provide an understanding of sol-gel, its products, including fiber optics used in the internet communication. Fiber Optics is a data-delivery system transmitting light and sound through glass fibers. In telecommunications, the fiber optic technology has replaced the copper-wire technology by delivering information 1000 times faster and 100 times farther.

Nanocamp Activity - Silver Mirror

The “Silver mirror” lesson explores the properties of silver and its compounds as well as its opportunity to be used as material for nanoparticles and their usage, and the history of mirrors and how can they be produced.
