High Performance Near Infrared Photothermal Dyes

Description:

The identified dye molecules absorb light around the 800nm wavelength and outperform other photothermal dyes.  The dyes generate the same amount of heat as gold nanoparticles while maintaining excellent chemical stability.  These dyes are superior candidates for photothermal imaging, photothermal therapy, tissue welding, or drug delivery applications where heat generation due to photothermal absorption produces the desired effect.
