Nanodiamonds feel the heat

Osaka, Japan (SPX) Jan 19, 2021
A team of scientists from Osaka University, The University of Queensland, and the National University of Singapore’s Faculty of Engineering used tiny nanodiamonds coated with a heat-releasing polymer to probe the thermal properties of cells. When irradiated with light from a laser, the sensors acted both as heaters and thermometers, allowing the thermal conductivity of the interior of a cell to Source: Nanodiamonds feel the heat
