This resource provides an introductory activity on "the basic quantum mechanics concepts about electrons that are essential to understanding modern and future technology- especially nanotechnology that will be vitally important to the industry." Core concepts include probability distribution, electron waves, diffraction, interference, tunneling, bound states and excited states. The interactive module allows students to test their knowledge as they learn. The material would be best for high school AP classes and college level students. Although a preview of the activity is available, instructors and students are encouraged to sign up with the Electron Technologies site before starting to use these materials.
