10 Proposed Applications to Biomedical Photonics

In the present chapter, expected applications of molecular layer deposition (MLD) to biomedical photonics are proposed. Although most of the proposals have little experimental confirmation, they will hopely provide some insights in the fields of biomedical research.

10.1 Therapy for Cancer Utilizing Liquid-Phase MLD

Liquid-phase MLD [1, 2, 3 and 4] is expected to be a powerful process in cancer therapy. Figure 10.1 shows a liquid-phase MLD process for stacking different kinds of functional molecules with designated arrangements on cancer cells [1]. The human body is the chamber and the cancer cells are the substrates for MLD in this case. In step 1, molecule A is introduced into a human body. ...
