Electron Technologies

The interactions of electrons with matter have great explanatory power and are central to many technologies from transistors, diodes, smoke detectors, and dosemeters to sophisticated imaging, lasers, and quantum computing. A conceptual understanding of the interactions of electrons in general allow students to acquire conceptual understandings that they can apply to a very broad range of technologies.

The Electron Technologies project developed field-tested interactive activities addressing core content and technical applications such as nanotechnology, photonics, electronics, materials science, biotechnology, and chemical engineering.
