Nanofluids are engineered colloidal suspensions of nanoparticles in water and exhibit a very significant enhancement (up to 200%) of the boiling critical heat flux (CHF) at modest nanoparticle concentrations (0.1% by volume). Since CHF is the upper limit of nucleate boiling, such enhancement offers the potential for major performance improvement in many practical applications that use nucleate boiling as their prevalent heat transfer mode. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology is exploring the nuclear applications of nanofluids, specifically the following three:
