Nanotechnology: The World Beyond Micro explores the world of nano dimensions and a growing number of engineered nanomaterials. The video looks at how the property of materials changes due to the effects of a high surface to volume ratio and quantum mechanics. Viewers are taken to industrial sites to see the large-scale production of carbon nanotubes and the production of specialized Kentera polymers in nano-enhanced composites. We also see how gold nanoparticles are made for research and used in tumor ablation and how paramagnetic nanoparticles are used in cancer marker biosensors. The video also looks at Atomic Layer Deposition, ALD, a process Intel uses in nanoscale IC fabrication.
This video has a downloadable PDF attached with details on downloading an interactive quiz. The quiz includes footage from the video and is an excellent way for students or trainees to test themselves on how much they know about the processes of semiconductor manufacturing.
