Nanocarbons, such as carbon nanotubes and carbon nanohorns, are materials of interest in many fields of science and technology because of their remarkable physicochemical properties. In particular, nanocarbons possess extraordinary photothermal energy conversion efficiency and high absorption cross sections in a wide wavelength range. In this presentation, this powerful photothermal conversion property of nanocarbons for bioengineering will be presented with the examples of several applications.
