News Flash: Rice University Create Cables Made Of Nanowires That Could Replace Copper Wires.
Popular Science (9/8, Boyle) reports, "Cables made out of nanowires could be just as efficient as the copper cables we've been using for more than a century, but at a fraction of the weight, according to a new paper. Braiding billions of carbon nanotubes into a nanowire cable can efficiently replace copper in a light bulb circuit."
MEMS: Making Micro Machines Learning Module
This folder contains the guides for the MEMS: Making Micro Machines Learning Module and Kit. The Participant Guide is available to everyone.Â However, you must be a registered user of this site to access the Instructor Guide.Â The learning module consists of three (3) activities and two assessments that support the film "MEMS:Â Making Micro Machines".Â This film presents several applications of MEMS as well as MEMS fabrication and design.Â It was produced and directed by Ruth Carranza of Silicon Run Production.
The MEMS:Â Making Micro Machine DVD Kit contains a DVD of the film and copies of the MEMS: Making Micro Machines Learning Module.Â The Participant Guide in this folder is available to everyone.Â The Instructor Guide is available to registered users of this site.
