Nanotechnology In Nysr

  1. 1.  Technology of the future  Major job growth  High paying jobs  Positive economic impact the state  New start up companies  Attract and keep top young talent  in the state  Clean technology Why Nanotechnology?
  2. 2. Personal Benefits From Nanotech  Better Medicines  Drugs with fewer side effects  Better career opportunities  Better metals and plastics material  Solar cells will become more cost effective  Cosmetics will have skin healing properties  Better Smart Cell phones technologies
  3. 3. Nanotechnology Growth  In a research report presented in December of 2003, Dr. M.C. Roco, chair of the Subcommittee on Nanoscience, Engineering and Technology of the National Science and Technology Council, forecast that by 2015, nanotechnology and products would become a global, trillion-dollar industry, requiring approximately two million workers.
  4. 4. Nanotechnology Growth  Research from UK consulting firm Cientifica Ltd. indicates that the market for nanotechnology-enabled products will reach $1.5 trillion in 2015, if you don't count semiconductors and electronics, two industries the firm says should be treated with caution.  About 80% of the 2015 market will relate to nanotechnology applications in the pharmaceuticals and health care industries.  Bear in mind that the market size does not represent the value of the nanotechnologies in the products, but the total value of the products. That means, for example, a dime's worth of nanomaterials may be included in a drug that costs $100.  Source: Cientifica Ltd.
  5. 5. Nanotechnology Growth  According to Tom Levesque, general manager of Illinois-based NanoInk, the science has been progressing at the predicted pace, but the workforce numbers have not. "We currently only have about 20,000 trained nanotechnologists in the world. They are primarily the results of high- level, research level-1 institutions … they have all the experience, and they are the nanotechnology workforce. … Those are the senior workers that would direct a technical workforce, and there are no technicians [available]," he stated in an interview with the Dallas Examiner.
  6. 6. What is Nanotechnology? Nanotechnology, shortened to "nanotech", is the study of the controlling of matter on an atomic and molecular scale. Generally nanotechnology deals with structures of the size 100 nanometers or smaller in at least one dimension, and involves developing materials or devices within that size.
  7. 7. Nanotechnology Size Comparisons
  8. 8.  A nanometer is one-billionth of a meter. A sheet of paper is about 100,000 nanometers thick; a single gold atom is about a third of a nanometer in diameter. What is a nanometer?
  9. 9.  Types of nanomaterial's named for their individual shapes and dimensions.  Think of these simply as particles, tubes, and films that have one or more nanosized dimension.  Nanoparticles are bits of a material in which all three dimensions of the particle are within the nanoscale.  Nanotubes have a diameter that’s nanosize, but can be several hundred nanometers (nm) long or even longer.  Nanofilms or nanoplates have a thickness that’s nanosize, but their other two dimensions can be quite large. What are the different types of nanomaterial's?
  10. 10.  Mihail (Mike) Roco of the U.S. National Nanotechnology Initiative has described four generations of nanotechnology development.  The current era  Passive nanostructures-materials designed to perform one task  The second phase  Active nanostructures for multitasking; for example, actuators, drug delivery devices, and sensors.  The third generation  Emerging around 2010 and will feature nanosystems with thousands of interacting components.  The first integrated nanosystems  Much like a mammalian cell with hierarchical systems within systems, are expected to be developed.

  17. 17.  Careers in Nanotechnology  There is a broad range of industries interested in hiring graduates—from chemical to pharmaceutical to materials. These industries are increasingly relying upon nanofabrication technology.  The Federal Government has stated that nanotechnology "is likely to change the way almost everything—from vaccines to computers to automobile tires to objects not yet imaginable—is designed and made."  Work Environment  Graduates may be involved in fabricating and characterizing nano- and micro-scale structures in research and development or manufacturing environments, in sales, or in product support. They are found anywhere nanotechnology is used to make consumer, industrial, and military products.  Nanotechnology companies are high-tech leaders. They offer dynamic and stimulating work places and operate with clean room environments that are typically 10,000 times cleaner than a hospital operating room.  Salaries  Graduates are receiving salary offers up to $35,000 to $55,000 per year with either the two- year degree or the certificate. Graduates of the baccalaureate degree can expect salary offers up to $65,000. Students who choose to continue their education may reach the $100,000 range. Career Options
