Microcantilevers Learning Module
This category includes the Microcantilevers Learning Module (Instructor guide, Participant guide and PowerPoint presentations) and a short overview of Atomic Force Microscopes. The Microcantilevers Learning Module contains instructional material as well as activities and assessments that allow instructors and students to learn more about microcantilevers - their applications and operations. This material includes topics and activities on the applications of microcantilevers, how they work, and how they are fabricated.
The Microcantilever Model Kit (formerly Dynamic Cantilever) supports the related activity found in this learning module.
The following SCME YouTube video can be used to support the concepts introduced.
Microcantilevers as Biosensors (1:07 minutes)
Cantilevers and Resonant Frequency (0:28 seconds)
MEMS Cantilevers: Sacrificial Layer Removal (0:17 seconds)
This document provides an overview of Atomic Force Microscopes (AFMs) - various applications, system components, types of AFMs, and how they work. This unit can be used to support the Microcantilevers Learning Module.
Revision January 2017
These are the animations that support the MEMS Cantilevers Learning Module and the PowerPoint presentations.
The Microcantilevers Learning Module is quite large; therefore, we have provided you the choice of downloading the entire learning module in one pdf (see Microcantilever - Participant Guide below) OR as two pdfs (Book 1 and 2). This folder contains Book 1 (a knowledge probe, three primary knowledge (PK) units) and Book 2 (one PK, two activities and assessment).
