Nano technology... Latest High tech trends

I think you certainly have heard the term "nanotechnology" soon, because – although it is a rather modern specialty – everyone is taking it with dialogues and a great deal of attention recently, precisely because of the promises of great leaps in the level of human development... But, do you really know what this technique is or how it can contribute to make our lives better?

Nanotechnology is the fruit of the integration of science and engineering in a very delicate field--within the limits of atoms and molecules--and scientists are studying and researching this technology through special and highly sophisticated electronic microscopes to conduct the latest scientific research and product development, and adapt this technology in a field Many serve humanity.

This technology has already been freed from the walls of laboratories and research centers, to the media world and government policies, which have made many developed countries adopt research on this technology and intensify efforts in it because of its long-term benefits.

In the United States of America, on June 24, 2011, U.S. President Barack Obama launched a giant advanced manufacturing Partnership (AMP), a national project that combines industry, universities and the federal government, to invest in new technologies that will create Great jobs in high-quality manufacturing and enhancing the global competitiveness of the United States, in all available areas.

The plan, approved by the U.S. president to invest more than $500 million in information technology, biotechnology and nanotechnology as the latest and most influential current and future technologies, to support the creation of good jobs, in order to help the government American manufacturers to reduce costs, improve quality, and accelerate product development.

Benefits and Applications:

Nanotechnology helps in spectacular and revolutionary developments in many different industrial sectors, such as: information technology, energy, environmental Sciences, medicine, national security, food safety, transport etc... Many States believe that investment and the operationalization of the research movement in this technique augur well for the solution of many of the challenges facing the humanitarian community and opens up promising prospects for solving many of the chronic problems that humanity generally suffers, such as:
  • Find cheap and clean energy.
  • It will be an essential source of water treatment, clean and potable throughout the world.
  • Improving human health and longevity.
  • Produce enough food for people who are growing very rapidly around the world.
  • Develop communications, as well as improve the exchange of information, so that everyone on this planet has equal opportunities to communicate.
  • Increase the ability of scientists to explore the universe in more modern and sophisticated ways

Where and how to study nanotechnology:

If you want to study nanotechnology, the right time to study this field is now. There are many universities around the world that offer undergraduate degrees in this field, along with postgraduate studies. In general, the study of nanotechnology includes the study of many other relevant scientific disciplines, such as physics, chemistry, Mathematics and Molecular Biology.
