Mice, Men, and Nanoparticles…

Graphical abstract. Credit:¬†Nanomaterials¬†(2023). DOI: 10.3390/nano13081404 Topics: Biology, Environment, Nanomaterials, Nanotechnology Among the biggest environmental problems of our time, micro- and nanoplastic particles (MNPs) can enter the body in various ways, including through food. And now, for the first time, research conducted at MedUni Vienna has shown how these minute particles manage to breach the blood-brainContinue reading “Mice, Men, and Nanoparticles…”

Magnetic Plasmons in Nanostructures…

FIG. 1.¬†(a) Sketches of the excitations of surface plasmons polaritons – SPP (top), localized surface plasmons – LSP (middle), and magnetic plasmons – MP (bottom). All these excitations are associated with a collective motion of surface charges under light illumination. (b) Diagram of MP-based plasmonic nanostructures that are used for both fundamental studies and theirContinue reading “Magnetic Plasmons in Nanostructures…”
