  • -- Gold-coated glass nanospheres of the right size will congregate near tumors, and can be destroyed with a near-infrared laser, killing the tumor cells with heat.


  • The gold and silver particles come out of compound and form nanospheres 10-20nm across for the desired effect, which explains why glassmakers had such rigid methods of proper temperature it had to be at past the melting point and how long it had to be held at melt to get good colors.
