As soon as the temperature outside falls below pleasant for the body of values, an increasing need to wear more clothes, or in addition to warm up the room. According to materials scientists from the United States, such measures may be unnecessary if you use them developed a nanomaterial that allows saving, without sacrificing comfort.

According to the report (PDF-material) of the International energy Agency to half of the energy generated by mankind (except electrical), expended on heating buildings. A substantial portion of this energy goes, is called "the pipe", warming furniture, appliances, or simply air.

Thanks to the invention of scientists from the United States have the opportunity at times to increase energy efficiency and thus eliminates the need to flaunt around the house in a thick sweater. As the authors write in their publication in the journal NANO Letters, they have developed a thin nanocoating for clothes make it through the cold season.

Innovative material (AgNW) is a thin film based on silver. It is applied over the fabric forming the conductive network that provides thermal insulation and, if necessary, can generate additional heat. According developers 1 volt raises the temperature to 40 degrees Celsius.

An important feature of the coating is that it can not retain heat and moisture to pass at a time. In other words, "nanoodezhda" retains all the qualities of an ordinary clothes and gives the added bonus of the ability to retain more heat.

"Making nanoodezhdy as simple as, for example, the process of dyeing, - says Sui Yi (Yi Cui) from Stanford. - Nanowires form an additional layer covering the fabric on the outside and reflecting back the heat emanating from the body."



Inventions in the field of materials science, like the finest electric or materials capable of producing oxygen, replacing plants, may have great potential.

Moreover, more and more researchers around the world pays attention to energy efficient and environmentally friendly technologies. For example, Spanish researchers noted the development of biological concrete and even offered a new, requiring no electricity, a method of cooling air.

It is assumed that the mass introduction of these innovations will significantly reduce carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere and reduce humanity's dependence on non-renewable energy sources.
