This folding is of interest in the context of DNA sequencing, where the folding can lead to sequencing errors. In this report I evaluate the conformations of confined polymers using a particular model, the telegraph model. In this model the conformations are modeled as correlated random walks with a bias against hairpins.<br /> Advances in Photothermal Effects in Plasmonics<p>PJ, lecture hall, Fysik Origo, Fysik</p><p>​This presentation by Guillaume Baffou is intended to give an overview of the developments in thermoplasmonics in physics, chemistry and biology.

This scheme constitutes the basis of the field of research named thermoplasmonics and can give rise to countless developments in many fields of science, on the micro and nanoscales, since any field of science features thermal induced processes.<span></span></div> <div>In this presentation Guillaume Baffou will put special emphasis on label-free temperature imaging in plasmonics, the recent search for new thermoplasmonic materials, 2D materials, fluid superheating, nanochemistry and single-cell thermal biology.</div> <div> </div> <div><a href=""><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/images/icgen.gif" alt="" />Read more about Guillaume Baffou and his ​research.<br />​</a><br /></div>
