Light, Nanotechnology Could Prevent Bacterial Infections in Implants

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
Researchers have devised a novel technique that uses nanotechnology and photonics to dramatically improve the performance of medical meshes for surgical implants and help prevent antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Institute of Photonic Sciences researchers have developed a medical mesh that features a surface of the mesh chemically modified to anchor millions of gold nanoparticles, which have been proven to efficiently convert light into heat at localized regions. The technique of using gold nanoparticles in light-heat conversion processes had already been tested in cancer treatments...Read full article
