NanoFab Lab … in a Box!™

Argonne National Laboratory, IL, United States

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

The NanoFab Lab … in a Box!™ educational kit connects the tangible macroscopic world to the world that can be observed only with a microscope. Classroom experiments challenge students to grow nanowires and derive the relationship between time and diameter of wires, helping them develop fundamental problem-solving and research skills.

Primary Application Area: Instrumentation & Manufacturing

Technology Development Status: Commercial Product

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 8

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: The Electroplate and Lift Lithography method is a simple elegant technology for inexpensively creating highly-engineered nanowire circuits without a clean room. The NanoFab Lab….in a Box!™ is a one of a kind easy to operate, affordable product for educational institutions to teach nanotechnology and provide exciting hands-on experiments for students.
