Thermoplasmonics of Platinum nanoparticles

Akbar Samadi

University of Copenhagen/Niels Bohr Institute

Akbar Samadi is a postdoctoral fellow at the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen. His research interests include plasmonic heating, optical trapping and tracking of nanoparticles and their use in biophotonics. Currently, he is affiliated with the StemPhys Center of Excellence and works with a focus on quantifying the changes in cellular viscoelastic properties as stem cells undergo differentiation.


Plasmonic nanoparticles can absorb part of incident laser energy and liberate it into the local environment in the form of heat . This effect can be used in an advantageous manner, for thermoplasmonic applications in the life... [ view full abstract ]
