About this Research Topic
Energy-converting processes play a pivotal role in modern technological advancements like energy harvesting, environmental governance, and disease treatment. The possibility to control external energies and the continuous advancement of nanotechnology has led to the development of numerous energy-converting nanoplatforms in biomedicine ranging from tumor theranostics, tissue repair, drug delivery to neural regulation. The ingenious utilization of external energies, energy-converting mechanisms, and energy-converting nanomaterials will not only provide promising possibilities in disease treatments but also promote progress in fundamental science like physics, chemistry, and materials science.
This Research Topic aims to capture the state-of-the-art theoretical and experimental research of energy-conversion nanomaterials and their applications in the biomedicine field, ranging from force-induced energy conversion (piezoelectric effect and collisions generated heat), heat-induced energy conversion (thermoelectric effect and thermochemical conversion), electricity-chemistry conversion, magnetic energy induced conversion (magnetocaloric effect and magnetoelectric effect), electromagnetic energy induced conversion (electromagnetic heat effect, photoelectric effect and up-conversion/down-conversion), electromagnetic energy conversion (electromagnetic heat effect and photoelectric effect) and chemical energy conversion in tissue repair, cancer therapy, neural regulation, bio-imaging, and health monitoring.
