Abstract :

Photo thermal therapy is an emerging method of cancer treatment in which tumours are ablated by heating agents using near-infrared light (700–1000 nm). A semiconductor with a band gap between 0.3–0.7 eV would, therefore, efficiently emit near-infrared light. The new “magic” material grapheme has a band gap of zero, which is advantageous with regard to designing a new material with a suitable band gap for the emission of near-infrared light. In our investigations, using the firstprinciples density functional theory calculation method, we aimed to and successfully designed grapheme-based materials with a direct band gap of 0.68 eV. They have the potential to be optimal and efficient near-infrared light sources due to their narrow yet fitting band gap. The present results open up a new avenue for the application of grapheme-based materials to assist in photo thermal therapy.
