Singlet oxygen is produced in living cells without any photosensitizing molecule from the only irradiation of a 1270 nm laser. The amount of singlet oxygen produced in this way is sufficient enough to induce cell death. This simplified scheme of singlet oxygen production represents an alternative approach to conventional methods of photodynamic therapy.
