    • Laser Plasma Jet Driven Microparticles for DNA/Drug Delivery 

      MENEZES, V; MATHEW, Y; TAKAYAMA, K; KANNO, A; HOSSEINI, H (PUBLIC LIBRARY SCIENCE, 2012)
      This paper describes a microparticle delivery device that generates a plasma jet through laser ablation of a thin metal foil and uses the jet to accomplish particle delivery into soft living targets for transferring ...
    • Shock wave based biolistic device for DNA and drug delivery 

      NAKADA, M; MENEZES, V; KANNO, A; HOSSEIN, SHR; TAKAYAMA, K (JAPAN SOCIETY APPLIED PHYSICS, 2008)
      A shock wave assisted biolistic (biological ballistic) device has been developed to deliver DNA/dr-ug-coated micro-projectiles into soft living targets. The device consists of an Nd:YAG laser, an optical setup to focus the ...
    • Shock wave driven liquid microjets for drug delivery 

      MENEZES, V; KUMAR, S; TAKAYAMA, K (AMER INST PHYSICS, 2009)
      A nonintrusive, minimally invasive, needle-less technique to deliver liquids into soft targets is presented. The technique uses a laser-induced shock wave to drive a liquid microjet at a very high speed such that the jet ...
    • Shock wave driven microparticles for pharmaceutical applications 

      MENEZES, V; TAKAYAMA, K; GOJANI, A; HOSSEINI, SHR (SPRINGER, 2008)
      Ablation created by a Q-switched Nd:Yttrium Aluminum Garnet (Nd:YAG) laser beam focusing on a thin aluminum foil surface spontaneously generates a shock wave that propagates through the foil and deforms it at a high speed. ...
