Hi Doug:

Sandia's Quicksilver project team has some good particle-in-cell video clips
(likely in .avi format for PowerPoint use) that illustrate the passage of
charged particles in 3D structures (upon which are embedded finite
difference time domain grids).

I would suggest that you look at
http://www.sandia.gov/pulspowr/ppeng/qs.html and
http://www.ppt.sandia.gov/projects/imgvulib/imagelib/#browse . A good still
image that (1) can be accessed from the latter site and (2) represents (I
think) what you are shooting for in terms of visual effect can be found at
http://www.ppt.sandia.gov/cgi-bin/get_image?qs1011

Alternatively, you could contact one of the following individuals for more
information:

Mark L. Kiefer, Ph.D.

Phone: (505)845-7271

It is not clear to me at this point if this is what you need, but it is
pretty interesting stuff to watch, if nothing else ...

Best regards,
Steve

Subject: [SI-LIST] : Atomic animation

I am working on a presentation where I will be talking about the following:
1. current is the flow of electrons.
2. Some atoms are better conductors of current than others because of the
number of free electrons in their outer shell (for example, copper, gold,
and silver all have just one electron in their outer shell.)

I am looking for a model or an animation of atomic structure that will help
make this point. At this point I am even willing to settle for a good
picture!!

Can anyone help point me to a resource where I can find something that will
help?

Thanks
Doug Brooks
