    Many thanks for the posting about our “UVA Virtual Lab” website. (I caught on to your posting when I noticed site usage going through the roof!)

    The aim of the site is to use intuitive 3D animations + recollections of high school physics to explain microelectronics and nanoscience. If you like the page on how integrated circuits are made, you might also want to take a look at:
