Detecting plasmonic heating via liquid crystals thermometry

Luciano De Sio

Sapienza University of Rome

Luciano De Sio is an assistant professor at the Department of Medico-surgical Sciences and Biotechnologies (Sapienza University of Rome, Italy). He has extensive experience in the fields of plasmonics, optofluidics, nanomedicine, polymers and liquid crystals. He has coauthored 90 articles in physics, several book chapters, and 18 international patents and delivered more than 30 scientific communications at conferences. He edited the book “Active Plasmonic nanomaterials.” He is also the principal investigator of an international project ofEuropean Office of Aerospace Research & Development (EOARD), supported by the U.S. Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR). 


Plasmonic nanoparticles (NPs) when pumped sufficiently with resonant radiation have the unique capability to concentrate an incredible amount of heat at the nanoscale, thanks to a phenomenon called localized plasmonic... [ view full abstract ]
