Nano Day 3
Nano Object of the Day
Stained Glass Troy Dassler
NISEnet Stained glass lesson plan UW Madison
You are self assembled.
Examples and Explorations of self assembly
Gold Nanostructures (Venetian stained glass)
Gold and silver nanostructures change color with size.
Gold nanoparticles (coated glass) are used to heat via IR and kill cancer cells.
Silver nano particles are used to kill bacteria.
Precipitated particles return to the original color
Encapsulation, Micelles, and self assembly NNIN
Starch iodine solution version of encapsulation.
Color My Nanoworld J Chem Ed
Models of self-assembly
Crystal self assembly, Sodium chloride by evaporation.
Floating Coins, aluminum coins float on water and assemble into crystal structures.
A short version of self-assembly by floating coins.
Garden of magnets, floating magnets form crystalline arrays. Circular symmetry, square symmetry.
Garden of magnets mini A smaller version of self assembled magnets.
Using Thermochromic liquid crystal sheets.
