  • 1. NanoLab Integrated interdisciplinary educational-research laboratory
  • 2. NanoLab NanoLab is a suite of modern research equipment designed for interdisciplinary education and research. Nanotechnology in education is an extremely wide spectrum of problems in fields of physics, chemistry, biology, computer science and mathematics which are interesting and promising to solve. Laboratory projects included in suite have thorough description and several levels of difficulty. With them it is possible to conduct studies far away from school program. Usage of modern research equipment in study process starting from school increases motivation of students and competitiveness of education.
  • 3. Physics Physics Physics Mathematics Mathematics Mathematics Chemistry Chemistry Biology Biology Chemistry Biology Nanotechnology Modern laboratory must include not only high-precision microscopes and complex chemical reactors. To utilize their potential one have to use comparatively simple and inexpensive equipment, which quality and functionality directly impacts on variety and complexity of approachable systems and phenomena. Most projects designed in such a way, that the can be performed under the guidance of good school teacher. Despite that, their themes are science trends of last 10-20 years and usually studied in senior university courses. NanoLab support includes consultations on labs, use of equipment and organization of project research. Projects allow to cope with interdisciplinary connections, develop interdisciplinary approach, form systematically scientific thinking and to learn more about modern problems of physics, chemistry, biology and nanotechnology. Participation of students in scientific and engineering contests widens mental outlook and serve as excellent career guidance.

  • 6. Scanning probe microscope Designed for teaching principles of scanning probe microscopy and acquiring skills for studying nanoobjects and microstructures. Semi-professional educational research suite. Supports all primary methods: atomic-force, magnetic-force and scanning tunneing microscopy, as well as nanolitography. Allows to acquire resolution up to atomic scale. Displayed series of atomic-force scans reveals various stages of evolution of amorphous metal material during annealing.

  • 8. 1 μm Pyrolytic chemical reactor Allows to conduct chemical reactions with gases, solids and vapours. Can be used as melting crucible. Temperature is variable from room tempera-ture to 1300°C. Pressure ranges from 1 to 0,001 of atmo-sphere Reactor is specialized on synthesis of different types of carbon nanotubes. Carbon nanotubes synthesized in reactor. Image in scanning electron microscope.
  • 9. Laboratory projects have several levels of difficulty Basic projects Projects with single devices. Demonstrate some phenomena and develop skills of work on modern equipment. Advanced projects Designed for advanced studies with most motivated students. Provide insights on composite nature of modern research and interdisciplinary connections. Research projects Performed individually. On example of actual problem show structure of scientific research, form skills of designing and performing experiment, work with scientific adviser and prepare for performing independent research.
  • 10. “Instant ice” The list will widen continuously “Crystallization of isomorphous compounds” Study of concept of isomorphism. Differences between crystallization of isomoprhous substances and isomorphous blends. “Basics of chromatography” Basics and technique of paper chromatography. “Directional properties of polyethylene” Study of differences between different types of polyethylene, of hot pressing on their structure. “Diversity of colloidal systems” Advanced projects (20–60 hours for each) “Synthesis of carbon nanostructures” “Analysis of carbon nanostructures” Synthesis of various colloidal systems.
