A promising approach to the treatment of superficial human cancer is laser induced hyperthermia. A correct choice of the parameters used for the treatment planning should be based on modeling of both radiative transfer and transient heating of human tissues which will allow to predict the thermal conversions in the tumor. In this paper, we focus on the(More)
Modeling of radiation characteristics of semitransparent media containing particles or bubbles in the independent scattering limit is examined. The existing radiative properties models of a single particle in an absorbing medium using the approaches based on (1) the classical Mie theory neglecting absorption by the matrix, (2) the far field approximation,(More)
An improved method used to determine the absorption and scattering characteristics of a weakly absorbing substance containing bubbles is suggested. The identification procedure is based on a combination of directional-hemispherical measurements and predictions of Mie-scattering theory including approximate relations for a medium with polydisperse bubbles. A(More)
a = bubble radius, m b = corrective factor used in Eq. (10) cij = matrix elements of the sensitivity coefficients J e = sample thickness, m f1, f2 = spectral weights of the Henyey–Greenstein phase function HG g = spectral asymmetry factor g1, g2 = spectral parameters of the Henyey–Greenstein phase function HG I = spectral radiation intensity, W m 2 sr 1 J =(More)
A modified two-flux approximation is suggested for calculating the hemispherical transmittance and reflectance of a refracting, absorbing, and scattering medium in the case of collimated irradiation of the sample along the normal to the interface. The Fresnel reflection is taken into account in this approach. It is shown that the new approximation is rather(More)
Gold nanoparticles (GNPs) are widely used for biomedical applications due to unique optical properties, established synthesis methods, and biological compatibility. Despite important applications of plasmonic heating in thermal therapy, imaging, and diagnostics, the lack of quantification in heat generation leads to difficulties in comparing the heating(More)
The effects of pore size on direction-averaged radiative properties of three-dimensionally ordered macroporous (3DOM) cerium dioxide (ceria) particles are investigated in the spectral range of 0.3-10 μm. The particles are of spherical shape and contain interconnected pores in a face-centered cubic lattice arrangement. The porous particle is modeled as a(More)
Gold nanoparticle (GNP)-based aggregation assay is simple, fast, and employs a colorimetric detection method. Although previous studies have reported using GNP-based colorimetric assay to detect biological and chemical targets, a mechanistic and quantitative understanding of the assay and effects of GNP parameters on the assay performance is lacking. In(More)
Radiative properties of spherical heterogeneous particles consisting of threedimensionally ordered macroporous (3DOM) cerium dioxide (ceria) are numerically predicted in the spectral range 0.3–10μm. The particles are 1μm in diameter, with interconnected pores of diameter 330 nm and a face-centered cubic lattice arrangement. Predictions are obtained by(More)
