Gamma radiation effect on carbon nanotubes

Uğur AKBABA [1]

An extensive review about gamma radiation effect on carbon nanotubes is given in this study. The interaction of carbon nanotubes with different doses and energies gamma radiation has been studied in recent years. Carbon nanotubes are desirable materials in technological applications because of their extra feature such as good thermal properties, ultra-light structures, different conductivity properties, durability, and superior heat resistance. For these reasons, they are used extensively in device construction. These devices are used extensively in environments exposed to radiation such as medicine, aviation, nuclear reactors, nuclear waste storage. Knowing the response of carbon nanotube materials to radiation is very important for the stability of the devices made. As can be seen from the literature review, the interaction of the material with gamma radiation is quite variable according to the type of material, the purity and the atomic lattice of material, dose and energy of the applied radiation and the environment (water, air, etc.) subjected to.
