Nuclear nanotechnology is a branch of science that deals with radioactivity, atomic procedures like transmutation, and atomic characteristics.
The use of advanced engineered nanomaterials in nuclear energy systems has opened up possibilities for boosting nuclear power’s performance and safety. Nuclear nanotechnology (NNT) is concerned with the usage of nanomaterials that have been developed for future nuclear energy applications.
The Global Nuclear Nanotechnology Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2027.
Researchers at MIT have devised a method for extracting 20% more electricity from today’s nuclear power reactors. A sprinkling of microscopic particles added to the water transfers heat from the hot nuclear fuel to the power-generating equipment.
MIT researchers employ heated wires submerged in water and an alumina nanofluid to replicate heat transfer from the nuclear fuel to the cooling. The wire in water (top) is still smooth after boiling in these scanning electron microscope photos. The wire in the nanofluid (bottom) has been covered by a layer of nanoparticles, resulting in a rough surface that improves heat transfer and prevents the formation of a vapour layer.
Future warfare will include mini-nukes and mosquito-like robot weaponry. Nanotechnology paves the way for the production of mini-nuke components that are difficult to check and identify. Furthermore, a bomb-capable weapon could be small enough to carry in a pocket or purse.
