Simple Graphene Synthesis

AtomTouch was created while working together with molecular dynamics simulation expert Dane Morgan and UW MRSEC education director Ann Lynn Gillian-Daniel. With the support of a MRSEC seed grant, MLI developed interactive 3-D simulation for mobile devices. The simulation was developed to help students understand the structures and attributes of particles at the molecular level, providing real-time feedback and responding to student’s actions.
