E. Doruk Onal is currently a Ph.D. candidate at Koc University Physics Department where he also received his BSc degree in physics and chemistry. His research is based on computational simulations of nanoparticles and their electromagnetic properties. Currently he is working on plasmonic nanoparticle designs to be used in medical applications, from cancer therapeutics to non-invasive imaging and diagnosis.


Gold nanoparticle (NP) assisted photothermal therapy (PTT) has been actively studied as a minimally invasive approach for treating cancer. With the contemporary fabrication techniques, NPs in a greater spectrum of shapes and... [ view full abstract ]
