Interview with the editor of TINC on (in Hungarian)

"Itt nincsenek rossz kérdések" (ELTEonline 2008-09-27)

Mikor indult a honlap?

2007 novemberében, szóval még nincs 1 éves, igazán frissnek mondható.

Mennyire vált népszerű ilyen rövid idő alatt?

Jelenleg 1070 tagja van, így sikeres kezdeményezésként értékelem.

Hogyan jött az ötlet?

Teljesen véletlenül. Eszembe nem jutott volna, hogy nanotudományos weboldalt szerkesszek. Egy reggel, amikor bementem… Continue

About us on ELTEonline (in Hungarian): Nanotudomány Nemzetközi Közössége

A webkettő kifejezést Dale Dougherty és Craig Line használta először, olyan honlapokat jelölve meg vele, melyek az internetezés egy új korszakának lettek előfutárai. Ezek a weboldalak mind a közösségre, a felhasználók által létrehozott, megosztott és szerkesztett tartalomra épülnek. Wikipédia, youtube, immáron egy éve pedig már a Nanotudomány Nemzetközi Közössége ( is.

POVRay Images

Many of the images I use on these pages were generated using POVRay.

Below is a povray file used to generate unit cell images:


Next is an example of a file used to generate electron orbitals from the actual wave function.…

Program Considerations

Our Nanoscience program is a blend of three main focus areas:

1. Materials Science and Characterization

2. Microfabrication

3. Biotechnology

This follows the model used by the University of Minnesota and Dakota County Technical College. I like this mixture. Some of the Nanoscience programs out there are more of a Microelectronics program with some materials science courses added in. We try to balance the three thrust… Continue

Quantum Mechanics Part 2


One of the things you might be wondering is how do you teach someone quantum physics when they only have had high school algebra and why do you teach someone quantum physics in Nanoscience. To answer the first question I would say that you don't have to do all of the differential equations to teach someone about quantum physics. Mostly I want to emphasize… Continue

Names of "Organic Nanites"

I am aware of the creation of "plumbers nightmare." by one of the NE U.S. Research Depts. However, I believe they will become more important to the point of the nano market eventually specifying Organic VS. Non Organic.

My point is in the use of "armor," if you utilize a non organic, an impact can create a toxic environment, especially in the presence of other gases. So, can some give a list or a "shortlist" im afraid, of Organic Nanites and their availability?

Thanks, David Woroner,… Continue

Test Time


I am running a bit late on giving the first exam. The document here contains a study guide for the first exam which I give to the students. I like to let them know what to expect on the exam. This may give you an idea of my expectations for a first semester student for the first exam.

By the way I am trying to come up with a good introductory vacuum systems lab… Continue

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

Dr. András Paszternák, founder of Nanopaprika
