Intracellular heating of living cells through Néel relaxation of magnetic nanoparticles


Maghemite and cobalt ferrite anionic magnetic nanoparticles enter tumor cells and can be used as heat sources when exposed to a high-frequency magnetic field. Comparative studies of the two particles enable to unravel the magnetic heating mechanisms (Néel relaxation vs. Brown relaxation) responsible for the cellular temperature rise, and also to establish a… (More)
