Moreover as compared to femtoscan, NANOEDUCATOR can operate with two principal kinds of probes. Professional Si-cantilevers can be used, which provide high image quality but are not suitable for education because students crash them often. And this is rather expensive! Alternatively NANOEDUCATOR can work with tungsten wire sharpen by electrochemical etching. Such probes cost nothing, they can be prepared by students, and the preparation itself could be good lab

=) Anastasia, it seems to me that you do not like Nanoeducator) It has resonant modes.

Lena! It is cool that it works with most operations systems. Nanoeducator is very good, if you are working in air environment , but it cannot work in liquid. And It has not an open architecture for optic control. And there is not resonant mode.

Thank you, Dmitry! I absolutely agree with you about school education, but it is not so easy to implement it in school

Anastasia, are you sure that Nanoeducator (expecially II) II is a device with limited features? As I know it is a professional tool. And it received the R&D 100 Award in 2011

Dear Lena and Abid,

Education is a modern trend. It's really important to have devices for this purpose with specal features:

1. Strong mechanics

2. Manual control

3. Educational manual

It will be greate success for student, if he has a chance to do everything by himself.

The next problem is, of course, effeciency of capital investment.

Software it's the key of solving this problem. 

In my opinion, FemtoScan Labs with FemtoScan Online Software is the best solution for education. See Anastasia V Bolshakova post

Lena, Nanoeducator is a device with limited features, you may use another one with similar price but with multimode. Also it is possible to equipped class only with soft and to have access to real microscope via Internet. For more options please see

and real time scanning

Abid, thank you for your opinion. I have some ideas about what could it be, and nanoeducator is among them

Lena,you probably heard about this nanoeducator platform .

I've been working with it not for a long time, but I like it because of it's simplicity in use. It's used in some universities in India and I know a lot of positive comments.

Sannette, I think that is a really great challenge! It is worth implementation! But I'm not sure I can really help you by sharing experience, because It is just my unshaped thoughts. 

Dave, I mean something like interactive lessons with real tasks but I still don't have clear undestanding and try to collect information on this topic

Sanette, I suppose that Red Cross takes part in programm like this, not research institutes and companies. There are many institutes in India, that have nanoeducation since 2004. And our experience is wide enough,we used to work with different technologies and nanoeducating platforms and saw results.I think that some of it can be usefull for your children too.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
