Nanoparticles are growing in popularity for drug delivery and photothermal therapy. A given nanoparticle can bear a specific receptor that facilitates interactions with target cells, and it can have a porous shell that controls agent diffusion rates. For photothermal therapy, nanoparticles can absorb light and convert the absorbed energy to heat, which is then transferred to surrounding cells—a strategy that is particularly promising for treating cancer.
