Keywords: , ,

In this paper, we present a novel cancer therapy method based on graphene inclusion in the cell solution and irradiation of the solution by near infrared lasers. The effect of various parameters such as graphene inclusion, as well as the IR irradiation has been investigated. A significant cell destruction was observed for the samples with graphene after 25 mins exposure to light.
