—This paper describes the instructional design, implementation , and assessment of a virtual laboratory based on a numerical simulation of a chemical vapor deposition (CVD) process, the virtual CVD laboratory. The virtual CVD laboratory provides a capstone experience in which students synthesize engineering science and statistics principles and have the… (More)
Milo D. Koretsky is an Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering at OSU. He received his BS and MS degrees from UCSD and Ph D from UC Berkeley, all in chemical engineering. Professor Koretsky's research interests are in thin film materials processing including: plasma etching, chemical vapor deposition, electrochemical processes and chemical process… (More)
The Virtual CVD Learning Platform provides a capstone experience in which students synthesize engineering science and statistics principles. They apply Design of Experiments (DOE) in the context similar to that of industry with a wider design space than is typically seen in the undergraduate lab. The Virtual CVD Learning Platform contains a numerical… (More)
ABStrACt This paper describes the AIChE Concept Warehouse, a recently developed web-based instructional tool that enables faculty within the discipline of chemical engineering to better provide their students concept-based instruction. It currently houses over 2,000 concept questions and 10 concept inventories pertinent to courses throughout the core… (More)
Using THz spectroscopy, we obtained the resistivity of Ni-Ti alloy thin-films as a function of Ti concentration. The resistivity sharply increases near the phase transition boundaries, Ti concentrations of 22%, 44% and 62%.
