Adventures at the Nanoscale
is a model of the nanoscale world. To explore this research and education tool,
you can watch the movies that we have prepared for you, interact with real-time
simulations, and create your own movies. Our computer-generated world consists
of rather simple atoms, much like Democritus of ancient Greece probably imagined.
If we define species of those atoms along with a few parameters to describe
their properties, the system can model and help us understand a variety of phenomena
of the real microscopic world.
