"Our rational design and low-cost fabrication of 3D origami photothermal materials represents a first-of-its-kind portable low-pressure solar-steaming-collection system," Li said.
ICFO researchers have addressed this problem by designing resonant photothermal sensitizers made of plasmonic nanoparticles that strongly absorb in the near-infrared, while only minimally interacting with visible light.
The therapeutic effect of excimer laser technology is mainly achieved by the following three kinds of actions: photochemical, photothermal, and photomechanical effects.
Additionally, various photobiological effects including photothermal, photochemical, fluorescence, photoacoustic or biostimulation have been produced by the use of a dental laser.
High intensity lasers may affect deeper tissue as they have shorter emission time and longer emission intervals compared to low intensity lasers.6 In recent times, the use of high intensity laser for physical therapy has been shown to significantly reduce pain with a variety of causes.7,8 The anti-edematous, anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect of Nd YAG laser for patients with pain has been determined by studies.9 Though there is no universal consensus to clearly explain the effect mechanism of laser, it is accepted as having three effects; photothermal, photochemical and photomechanic.10,11
Bruker said that Anasys Instruments is the world leader in photothermal IR spectroscopy from the nanoscale to the sub-micron and macro scales.
