What this guide contains

The topics addressed in this guide are:

  • Connexions Accounts - An account enables you to write, edit, and publish your content in Connexions.
  • Workgroups - A workgroup is similar to a file directory on your computer. A directory in which you create and edit your documents before you publish them.
  • Importing Microsoft Word Documents - Connexions can do what it does because its content is marked up with XML-based tags called CNXML. But do not worry, you can import Word documents directly into Connexions and sidestep the CNXML.
  • Revising Your Content - You can edit your content in Connexions by re-importing your Word document or by using an editor provided by Connexions.
  • Publishing in Connexions - When you are ready for the world to see your content, you publish it. Anyone anywhere with an Internet browser and access to the Internet can view your content after you publish in Connexions.
  • Additional Connexions Information Sources - Additional bits of information about Connexions that you may want to learn and use.

A brief description of connexions

Connexions is a Web-based document creation and management system for education and research materials. There are two parts to Connexions: a Content Commons that contains these materials and the software tools necessary to create, manage, and access these materials. A tour of the workings of Connexions and its parts appears on the Connexions Web page (http://cnx.rice.edu) , under the "About" tab.

From its inception, Connexions was designed to allow the collaborative development and free availability of material. Instructors and authors can use and reuse the material in Connexions for any educational purpose. Connexions offers Free/Open Source software tools to help instructors and authors manage these information assets for sharing and advancing knowledge to benefit of students in the global educational community. All of this is accomplished through the use of the Creative Commons Attribution license (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0/).

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
