Title:
Seminar at the Accelerator - Biological applications of the photovoltaic effect in LiNbO3:Fe

20.01.2011 - 20.01.2011
Where:
CMAM - Madrid
Category:
Informal seminars at the Accelerator

Description

Speaker: Alfonso Blázquez Castro, Clinical Laboratory, MD Anderson Hospital, Madrid, Spain

The Exposition of doped LiNbO3 with iron (LiNbO3: Fe) to visible light induces the appearance of a strong electric field within the material. Until now this effect, called photovoltaic effect in volume (EFV), was used to induce changes in the refractive index. However, the effect of the electric field in biological structures has not been studied. This seminar will present the first results obtained after exposure of tumor cell cultures to EFV and the possible mechanisms of electric field interaction with biological structures.
