Research co-authored by ICFOnians highlighted in the Virtual Journal of Biomedical Optics. The papers entitled “Temperature mapping near plasmonic nanostructures using fluorescence polarization anisotropy” and “Transcranial optical monitoring of cerebrovascular hemodynamics in acute stroke patients” have been selected for publication in the latest issue of the Virtual Journal for Biomedical Optics (VJBO). The first article is authored by Dr. Guillaume Baffou, postdoctoral researcher, Dr. Mark Kreuzer and Dr. Florian Kulzer, research fellows, and Prof. Romain Quidant, at ICFO. The second article was published by Prof. Turgut Durduran when he was working at the University of Pennsylvania together with other researchers at the same university. Every month, the editor-in-chief of the VJBO reviews articles in the biomedical field that have been published in other OSA journals and selects appropriate articles for inclusion in VJBO.
