3D Printing and Nanoscience

Posted on May 22, 2015 at 6:23pm 1 Comment

Many institutions now have access to inexpensive 3D printing capability.  These can be used in Nanoscience education for both conceptual and practical applications.  A 3D printer can be used to make models of atomic lattice structure.  Atomic packing factor and theoretical density calculations can…


Bugs in the SEM

Posted on September 28, 2012 at 11:38pm 0 Comments

Taking pictures of bugs with a scanning electron microscope is a way to encourage interest in microscopy among younger students and children.  (I really enjoy it myself.)  Getting the best image of our insect friends can be something of a challenge though.  In this blog I will describe some basic techniques for imaging…

Scale of Things

This is my new favorite scale of things site.


This site lets you zoom into the nanoscale and further into the far subatomic and you can zoom out to the size of the universe.  You can get interesting information and trivia by clicking on the objects.  It includes many more objects than other similar sites.  Very fun to explore.

Battery Technology

I was reading some research on battery technology and asked to express my opinion so I thought I would do it on this blog.

You can read the news article at the following site:Semi-Solid Flow Cells or the research article at Semi-Solid Lithium Rechargeable Flow Battery .

I'm not an expert in battery…

No doubt article is very interesting and it's matter of real imagination work which could comeout to work in practicle work. if you like we could discusse it in more details.

With best wishes

Dr. mikelson, I think I will do one thing, I will sendm my CV to you and as and when your company decides, or else any of your friend who are working in a nanotechnolology or application of nanostructured materials etc., u can inform me that. I am sorry that I am becoming very selfish in friendship. I can assure you that I can put all my efforts to develop new material or its applications. thanks in advance and many regards.

Dr. Mikelson, I am glad that now you are my friend on international nanoscience community. well this is the matter I have been busy with for quite a few time. I want to go for the application of nanostructured surfaces (silicon, BSG glass, alumina and graphite; as I have got in my ph.d. also I want some front, some platform where I can apply my intution to synthesize nanowire and nanodots. can you please convery to me how about nanorite.org?

ur blog is quite usefull for all of us in nanotech, nanoscience. I would like to request you to please convey to me if u find any opportunity for post doctoral post in nanotechnology. I have done ph.d in a nanotechnology topic "non-lithographic techniques for surface nanostructuring especially the synthesis routes to nanowires and nanodots and its surface plasmonic and magnetc characterizations. thanks in advance.

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 editor@nanopaprika.eu
