Michael Davidson
 Molecular Expressions Lab
• Currently focused on education of
  scientific investigators and scientific
• Support from FSU Research
  Foundation and corporate partnerships
  such as Nikon and Olympus
• Create explanatory web articles and
  interactive tutorials to better educate
  the scientific community in microscopic
  and imaging techniques
Biotechnology and Biological Imaging

• Fluorescence microscopy using
  widefield fluorescence
• Laser Scanning Confocal microscopes
• Polarized microscopy
• High-sensitivity CCD cameras
• Time-lapse live-cell systems
What is the Concept of
Interactive Java Tutorial?
• To help reader explore complex concepts
• Animation and written description
• Controlled by reader to make changes
• Charging and Discharging a Capacitor *
• Lightning: An Example of Natural Capacitor *
• How a Transformer Works *
Why I want to work with
Interactive Java Tutorial
• Excellent for my students
  – Great Animation
  – Short Explanation
  – Students may visit on their own time
• Great for anyone with internet access
• No need for equipments
• Virtual self-learning classroom
How We Learn...
(Les Giblin, p. 22)

         •   1% through TASTE
         •   1.5% through TOUCH
         •   3.5% through SMELL
         •   11% through HEARING
         •   83% through SIGHT
What I have done so far…
• Curie Temperature for Ferromagnetism
  – Property of all magnetic materials
  – A constant temperature for the material
  – Material exceeding this temperature will lose
    its magnetic properties
  – Temperature drop below Curie temperature
    then the material will regain its magnetic
     Curie Temperature


        Material            Temperature (K)
          Fe                    1043
          Co                    1388
           Ni                    627
           Gd                    293
           Dy                     85
         CrBr3                    37
        Au2MnAl                  200
        Cu2MnAl                  630
        Cu2MnIn                  500

Eddy Current
• Electric currents induced in a conductor
  by the movement of a magnetic field,
  which triggers a flow of electrons within
  the conductive material
• name reflects the fact that they are
  produced in small swirls, or eddies
• create magnetic fields within the
  conductor that oppose the change in flux

• Eddy Current Swing in Java Tutorial *
• Eddy Current Train in Java Tutorial *
Eddy Current
• Cooling copper
  bar in liquid
  nitrogen lower
  the resistance
  in the bar and
  create higher
  eddy current

Another Eddy Current Tutorial

•   Magnets in Eddy Tubes *
•   Plax Glass tube
•   Copper tube
•   Copper tube with a slit
•   Copper tube cooled in liquid Nitrogen
Paramagnetism of Liquid Oxygen
• Liquid Oxygen poured
  between magnet will
  be attracted to it
• due to unpaired
  electrons in its
  outermost energy level

Polar vs. Nonpolar compounds
• Charge a rubber and/or glass rod
  with silk or fur
• Hold the rod next to the streams
  of burets
• Nonpolar compounds
• Polar compounds
