AbstractMagnetic fluid hyperthermia (MFH) therapy uses the magnetic component of electromagnetic fields in the radiofrequency spectrum to couple energy to magnetic nanoparticles inside tumors. In MFH therapy, magnetic fluid is injected into tumors and an alternating current (AC) magnetic flux is applied to heat the magnetic fluid- filled tumor. If the temperature can be maintained at the therapeutic threshold of 42C for 30 minutes or more, the tumor cells can be destroyed. Analyzing the distribution of the magnetic fluid injected into tumors prior to the heating step in MFH therapy is an essential criterion for homogenous heating of tumors, since a decision can then be taken on the strength and localization of the applied external AC magnetic flux density needed to destroy the tumor without affecting healthy cells. This paper proposes a methodology for analyzing the distribution of magnetic fluid in a tumor by a specifically designed giant magnetoresistance (GMR) probe prior to MFH heat treatment. Experimental results analyzing the distribution of magnetic fluid suggest that different magnetic fluid weight densities could be estimated inside a single tumor by the GMR probe. 2013 Gooneratne et al.

Observation of Various and Spontaneous Magnetic Skyrmionic Bubbles at Room Temperature in a Frustrated Kagome Magnet with Uniaxial Magnetic AnisotropyHou, Zhipeng; Ren, Weijun; Ding, Bei; Xu, Guizhou; Wang, Yue; Yang, Bing; Zhang, Qiang; Zhang, Ying; Liu, Enke; Xu, Feng; Wang, Wenhong; Wu, Guangheng; Zhang, Xixiang; Shen, Baogen; Zhang, Zhidong (Advanced Materials, Wiley-Blackwell, 2017-06-07) [Article]The quest for materials hosting topologically protected skyrmionic spin textures continues to be fueled by the promise of novel devices. Although many materials have demonstrated the existence of such spin textures, major challenges remain to be addressed before devices based on magnetic skyrmions can be realized. For example, being able to create and manipulate skyrmionic spin textures at room temperature is of great importance for further technological applications because they can adapt to various external stimuli acting as information carriers in spintronic devices. Here, the first observation of skyrmionic magnetic bubbles with variable topological spin textures formed at room temperature in a frustrated kagome Fe3 Sn2 magnet with uniaxial magnetic anisotropy is reported. The magnetization dynamics are investigated using in situ Lorentz transmission electron microscopy, revealing that the transformation between different magnetic bubbles and domains is via the motion of Bloch lines driven by an applied external magnetic field. These results demonstrate that Fe3 Sn2 facilitates a unique magnetic control of topological spin textures at room temperature, making it a promising candidate for further skyrmion-based spintronic devices.

Committee members: Mohammed, Omar F.; Takanabe, KazuhiroCarbon nanotubes (CNTs) have special characteristics that made them good agents especially for biomedical applications. In this study, Fe3O4 nanoparticles were incorporated onto the surface of CNTs followed by polyethylene glycol (PEG) grafting forming CNTs-Fe3O4-PEG hybrids. The PEGylation improves their biocompatibility, water solubility, and increases blood circulation. CNTs-Fe3O4-PEG was used as T2-contrat agent for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). In addition, doxorubicin (DOX) was loaded onto CNTs-Fe3O4-PEG. The release of DOX from DOX-loaded CNTs-Fe3O4-PEG was tested under different pH conditions (7.4, 6.3 and 5.2). The release increased at acidic pH compared to neutral pH, which shows the sensitivity of the system to pH change. Triggering the release by Near Infra-Red (NIR) irradiation was furthermore investigated. The release increased after irradiation with NIR compared to control sample. These result prove that the designed system can be triggered by an internal stimuli (pH) and external stimuli (NIR irradiation) making it a promising candidate to be used for biomedical applications.
