Abstract

There is a lot of interest in the research community about nanofluids due to their high thermal conductivity and potential applications as heat transfer fluids. In this paper we calculate the optical and radiative properties of nanofluids. Results indicate that the radiative properties of nanofluids can be very different from those of the base fluid, suggesting that these properties can be tailored to satisfy specific applications. Results also suggest that multiple and dependent scattering effects can be very dominant in nanofluids.
