Additional Book Details
Developments at the nanoscale are leading to new possibilities and challenges for nuclear applications in areas ranging from medicine to international commerce to atomic power production/waste treatment. Progress in nanotech is helping the nuclear industry slash the cost of energy production. It also continues to improve application reliability and safety measures, which remain a critical concern, especially since the reactor disasters in Japan.
Exploring the new wide-ranging landscape of nuclear function, Atomic Nanoscale Technology in the Nuclear Industry details the breakthroughs in nanoscale applications and methodologies that are revolutionizing power production, biotechnology, and material science.
Developments in atomic nanoscale technology have given us the ability to:
Use ion beams to Investigate and optimize radiation energy losses at the nanoscopic level
Assess nanoscopic safety circumstances involved in a reactor failure
Analyze characteristics of nuclear spacecraft operating in the nanogravity of deep space
Evaluate light collection enhancement for digital X-ray detection
Apply brachytherapy using radioisotopes for cancer therapy
Treat nuclear waste at the nanoscopic level
Use systems-thinking decision making to analyze financial progress of nanotech in the energy industry
Assess safety (and safety management methods) for nuclear nanomaterials used in plant operations
Representing a first step in multi-combinatorial research, this text incorporates advanced studies that use Monte Carlo and solid-state measurement (including radiation detection) methods. Researchers used these to demonstrate the potential to upgrade methods of radiation protection and nuclear reactor operation (safety, waste disposal, etc.). The author also addresses how we can use nanotechnology to address industrial concerns and enhance nuclear medicine techniques. He highlights several nanomaterial systems and devices to illustrate developments in this area.
