Light Used to Remotely Trigger Biochemical Reactions, Rice University Study


12/14/2012 7:37:05 AM

Since Edison's first bulb, heat has been a mostly undesirable byproduct of light. Now researchers at Rice University are turning light into heat at the point of need, on the nanoscale, to trigger biochemical reactions remotely on demand. The method created by the Rice labs of Michael Wong, Ramon Gonzalez and Naomi Halas and reported today in the American Chemical Society journal ACS Nano makes use of materials derived from unique microbes -- thermophiles -- that thrive at high temperatures but shut down at room temperature.
