We Can Figure This Out.org
Virtual Lab: Photolithography
University of Virginia
PROJECT OVERVIEW: This "Virtual Lab" website was developed by John C. Bean. It began under a grant from the National Science Foundation's CCLI program, and grew under subsequent NIRT, MRSEC and NUE awards. It has now been combined with Bean's Nanoscience and Sustainable Energy websites to form WeCanFigureThisOut.org (about / contact).
SOFTWARE TOOLS: The Virtual Lab's animations were created using the program "3D Studio MAX." The website is built upon PHP programming calling upon MySQL databases.
PAGE CREDITS: Animations were generated by Lucas Hardy & Matt Shields. Technical advice was provided by Professiors James F. Groves and Melissa Appleyard, and Antonio R. Gallo (Dominion Semiconductor). The presentation was narrated by Kris Seale. The webpage was produced by Chris Lehmbeck & John C. Bean
