In modern world we can perceive that fast changing industry technologies requires increasing educational level and professional skills of employees. Classical education meant to give fundamental knowledge and can't cover edge of science progress and keep this accelerated pace. It's normal situation because there is some time lag between new inventions and their including into educational program. That is why today role of science societies are increasing. Advantages of science societies are especially important in formation new specialists. These advantages are realized in activity of student chapter of international science societies.
Adaptive materials integrate actuating and sensing materials into a structural material. The development of polymer composites with embedded shape memory alloys can open new perspectives with respect to the development of engineering structures with adaptive shape, stiffness, damping and other properties. The development of these advanced composites with embedded shape memory alloy wires is still in an embryonic stage. Given ellipsometry measurements of optical properties copper based alloy which require further research before these adaptive composites can be used in industrial applications.
Optical properties of flawless bulk copper sample has been studied based on spectroellipsometry measurements in wide spectral interval (hv=0.18-4.87 eV) at various angles of light incidence. The main characteristics of electronic subsystem of this metal and values of main energy intervals in a band structure were determined for both oxidized and unoxidized copper sample.
