In this work, we report results on an innovative Carbon-based nanofluid suitable for increased
light radiation absorption [1,2]. The innovation resides on the interaction mechanisms of light
photons with the nanoparticles, focusing on photon trapping inside the nanoparticles, thus
taking advantage of their consecutive inelastic scattering [3] with their inner walls, until they
deliver most of their energy. Sizes and shapes of the nanoparticles are of major importance. A
quick estimation considering photons’ wavelengths to be captured, e.g. for visible spectrum
lengths around 560 nm or near IR, the nanoparticles’ cavities must have diameters around
600nm or more. Consequently, combinations of different sized nanoparticles are considered,
in addition to their sizes and shapes. A second important parameter is the phonons creation
(few μm), related with the nano-particles’ lengths. Also, these phonons must be able to
propagate. We adopted a low thermal conductivity liquid and a “thermal conduction path”
related with a percolation threshold that correlates with the optimum concentration of the
nanoparticles. The intrinsic nanoparticles’ thermal conductivity of the material is also
important. Preliminary experiments provided very promising results.
