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."

Deposition for Microsystems Learning Module

This category include the Deposition Overview for Microsystems Learning Module (Instructor guide, Participant guide and PowerPoint presentation).  This learning module provides an overview of the various deposition processes used to fabricate microsystems.  Such processes include thermal oxidation, chemical vapor deposition (CVD), and physical vapor deposition (PVD).

The Science of Thin Films Kit (formerly Rainbow Wafer Kit) supports this learning module by providing the participants the opportunity to further explore thin films through an in-depth study of the thin film - silicon dioxide.

The following SCME YouTube videos can be used to support the concepts and activities introduced in this learning module.
