Dominik Hühn, Alexander Govorov, Pilar Rivera Gil and Wolfgang J. Parak Photostimulated Au Nanoheaters in Polymer and Biological Media: Characterization of Mechanical Destruction and Boiling Advanced Functional Materials 22
Agglomerated gold nanoparticle clusters embedded in-between multilayered polyelectrolyte matrices are excited optically. The extent of film destruction and the formation of vapor bubbles are shown to be strongly dependent on the conformation of the ambient medium. Especially the heat dissipation in biological media is shown to be entirely different from that in media without salt or protein content.
