Above find links to a collection of
Jmol models constructed
for one-to-one comparison with experimental nanomicroscopy data.
The goals are to inspire the design of classroom explorations
and empirical observation challenges, as well as perhaps to
help out a bit with research here and there. Check
instead for a set of related
nanomicroscopy, powers-of-ten and spacetime challenges centered
around a Mathematica-based
applet with stronger zooming and reciprocal space capabilties,
but less dedicated to atoms in direct space.
Although you can of course just "look at the pictures",
the microscopy data presented in images here is intended for
quantitative use e.g. for making comparative measurements on
captured or printed images by hand or with image analysis
programs. Hence you can assume that relative sizes
and angles in the images provided are largely intact.
Note: Many of the Jmol models offer a right-click menu which
lets you remove perspective effects in them as well.
We intend to make this model collection reliably available for
as long as possible, as well as to add rubrics for application in
classroom settings and new models as well. Hence suggestions
on how to make them work for your applications would be most welcome.
Methanol (that red thing is an oxygen -- jmol has its own
default color scheme built in and I guess oxygens are rightly
viewed as hot stuff):
