New materials and nanotechnology

Nanotechnology - one of the fastest growing areas in science at the moment. Almost every day there are reports of the development of new materials or the improvement of existing properties, and scientists are developing new methods of treating diseases. And all this is due to nanotechnology.

Composite materials have been around for a long time. For example, one of the simplest composites - reinforced concrete - was patented by nearly one hundred and fifty years ago. But it is possible to use nanotechnology to create new materials have, but different from the usual metal or wood, higher durability and flexibility. Furthermore, they are lighter and have increased durability.

Already, nanotechnology is used in various industries - electronics, energy, medicine, engineering, construction and others. People regularly encounter them in everyday life, often without even knowing it. Nanotechnology-gies are widely used in electronic devices, when creating hygiene and fabrics, automotive paint.
Due to the active development of 3D-printing people will be able to create basic household items, including a fairly complex design, the comfort of their home.

Seriously development is expected in the field of energy. Why use a logical neeko-fuel resources as a simple solar panel can be printed at home on plain paper?

In the near future, nanotechnology will have an even more widespread. One of the promising areas - the creation of so-called "smart" homes. The concept of a fully automated apartments there is not the first year. However, the use of nanotechnology can bring this idea to the next level. For example, to create a home in which the color of the walls will vary depending on external factors or simply at the request of the tenant; room to be ventilated, Thoroe independently, without having to open a window or turn on air conditioning.

Keep in mind that nanotechnologies are interdisciplinary branches, which means that new professions useful knowledge in chemistry, biology, engineering and many others. According to the most optimistic forecasts, the profession of nanotechnology will enter the top ten most popular in the next few years.

Specialist for the development and production of glass products on the basis of glass-composite functional materials.

Specialist in the replacement of traditional solutions when selecting materials on someone cata- in construction, engineering and robotics, medicine.

Professional, simulated properties, prediction of the life cycle of nanotechnology materials using digital models. Highly professional programmer with a good knowledge of nanophysics and nanochemistry.

Engaged in the design of software and technology solutions for "smart media" (spaces, combining composite materials and "intelligent" components such as chips, capable of responding to user requests): formation of the desired properties, the selection of a composite material, the determination of conditions of existence environment integration of environment in the common space home, office or industrial enterprise, identifying and specifying security settings, creating a "friendly" interface.

Responsible for the safety of workers, end-users of the product and the environment. Develops programs to enable a rapid response to the occurrence of the negative effects of production or use of nanoproducts.
