Sculpting with light: light/matter interactions in biocompatible polymers

Applegate, Matthew.

Abstract: When light interacts with matter either the light or the material can be changed. This dissertation focuses on light/matter interaction in silk fibroin and its utility for biomedical applications. Silk, a natural biocompatible, biodegradable polymer, has a large 3-photon absorption cross-section which allows modest peak intensity light to cause significant multiphoton absorption. This ab... read more
