AB  - Carbon dots (CDs) and N-carbon dots (N-CDs) loaded with Ru-complex (CDs@RuCN, N-CDs@RuCN, respectively) were investigated as media imposing biochemical changes induced by UV illumination of ovarian cancer, A2780, and osteosarcoma, CAL72, cells. Synchrotron radiation-based Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy was performed, and the spectra were subjected to a Principal Component Analysis. The CDs@RuCN and N-CDs@RuCN effects on cancer cells were analyzed by the theoretical modelling of the stability of the composite systems and a protein database search. Moreover, a detailed evaluation of surface and optical properties of CDs@RuCN and N-CDs@RuCN was carried out. Results demonstrated selective action of the CDs@RuCN and N-CDs@RuCN-based photodynamic therapy, with N-CDs@RuCN being the most active in inducing changes in A2780 and CDs@RuCN in CAL72 cells. We assume that different surface charges of nanoparticles led to direct interactions of N-CDs@RuCN with a Wnt signalling pathway in A2780 and those of CDs@RuCN with PI3–K/Akt in CAL72 cells and that further biochemical changes occurred upon light illumination.

AB  - In the last decade, targeting membrane lipids in cancer cells has been a promising approach that deserves attention in the field of anticancer drug development. To get a comprehensive understanding of the effect of the drug [Ru(η5-Cp)(PPh3)2CN] (RuCN) on cell lipidic components, we combine complementary analytical approaches, matrix-assisted laser desorption and ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI TOF MS) and synchrotron radiation-based Fourier transform infrared (SR-FTIR) spectroscopy. Techniques are used for screening the effect of potential metallodrug, RuCN, without and with drug carriers (carbon dots (CDs) and nitrogen-doped carbon dots (N-CDs)) on the lipids of the human ovarian cancer cell line A2780. MALDI TOF MS results revealed that the lysis of ovarian cancer membrane lipids is promoted by RuCN and not by drug carriers (CDs and N-CDs). Furthermore, SR-FTIR results strongly suggested that the phospholipids of cancer cells undergo oxidative stress after the treatment with RuCN that was accompanied by the disordering of the fatty acid chains. On the other hand, using (N-)CDs as RuCN nanocarriers prevented the oxidative stress caused by RuCN but did not prevent the disordering of the fatty acid chain packing. Finally, we demonstrated that RuCN and RuCN/(N-)CDs alter the hydration of the membrane surface in the membrane–water interface region.

AB  - Tuning the values of artificial flux in the two-dimensional octagonal-diamond lattice drives topological phase transitions, including between singular and non-singular flatbands. We study the dynamical properties of nonlinear compact localized modes that can be continued from linear flatband modes. We show how the stability of the compact localized modes can be tuned by the nonlinearity strength or the applied artificial flux. Our model can be realized using ring resonator lattices or nonlinear waveguide arrays.

AB  - Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a promising cancer treatment that can be implemented using various agents. The conventional photosensitizer Al (III) phthalocyanine chloride tetrasulfonic acid (Pc) has limitations of selectivity in tumor targeting, low affinity to cancer cells, and low two-photon absorption. This study presents a novel photosensitizer FA-TiO2-Pc, which has the TiO2 nanoparticle conjugated with a tumor targeting agent of folic acid (FA), and Pc. FA-TiO2-Pc possessed high targeted photodynamic therapeutic activity and excellent biocompatibility. This promising photosensitizer showed high therapeutic drug efficiency in vitro at a low concentration dose and short incubation time under one-photon excitation (OPE). In vivo, when treated with a low dose of FA-TiO2-Pc and low light irradiation, the tumor growth was depressed in mice bearing HeLa xenograft tumors with minimal side effects. In addition, the two-photon absorption of FA-TiO2-Pc was also enhanced compared to Pc, proving that FA-TiO2-Pc system has a great potential to be used for the therapy of the folate receptor positive cancer cells in both OPE-PDT and two-photon excitation (TPE)-PDT agents. © 2020 Elsevier B.V.

AB  - In this study, C-doped TiO2 nanoparticles (C-TiO2) were prepared and tested as a photosensitizer for visible-light-driven photodynamic therapy against cervical cancer cells (HeLa). X-ray diffraction and Transmission Electron Microscopy confirmed the anatase form of nanoparticles, spherical shape, and size distribution from 5 to 15 nm. Ultraviolet–visible light spectroscopy showed that C doping of TiO2 enhances the optical absorption in the visible light range caused by a bandgap narrowing. The photo-cytotoxic activity of C-TiO2 was investigated in vitro against HeLa cells. The lack of dark cytotoxicity indicates good biocompatibility of C-TiO2. In contrast, a combination with blue light significantly reduced the survival of HeLa cells: illumination only decreased cell viability by 30% (15 min of illumination, 120 µW power), and 60% when HeLa cells were preincubated with C-TiO2. We have also confirmed blue light-induced C-TiO2-catalyzed generation of reactive oxygen species in vitro and intracellularly. Oxidative stress triggered by C-TiO2/blue light was the leading cause of HeLa cell death. Fluorescent labeling of treated HeLa cells showed distinct morphological changes after the C-TiO2/blue light treatment. Unlike blue light illumination, which caused the appearance of large necrotic cells with deformed nuclei, cytoplasm swelling, and membrane blebbing, a combination of C-TiO2/blue light leads to controlled cell death, thus providing a better outcome of local anticancer therapy.

AB  - Objects of the present study are improved fullerene C60 drug carrier properties trough encapsulation by microbial polysaccharides, levan (LEV), pullulan (PUL), and their hydrophobized cholesterol-derivatives (CHL and CHP), that show better interaction with cancer cells. The zeta potential, polydispersity index, and the diameter of particles were determined, and their cytotoxicity against three cancer cell lines were tested. Biochemical changes in HeLa cells are analyzed by synchrotron radiation (SR) FTIR spectro-microscopy combined with the principal component analysis (PCA). The most significant changes occur in HeLa cells treated with LEV-C60 and correspond to the changes in the protein region, i.e. Amide I band, and the changes in the structure of lipid bodies and membrane fluidity are evident. The highest cytotoxicity was also induced by LEV-C60. In HeLa cells, cytotoxicity could not be strictly associated with biochemical changes in lipids, proteins and nucleic acids, but these findings are significant contribution to the study of the mechanism of interaction of C60-based nanoparticles with cellular biomolecules. In conclusion, LEV, PUL, CHL, and CHP enhanced fullerene C60 potential to be used as target drug delivery system with the ability to induce specific intracellular changes in HeLa cancer cells.

AB  - TiO2 prolatenanospheroids (PNSs) may be photosensitizers (PSs), which act by catalyzation of hydroxyl radical (∙OH) formation upon light illumination. ∙OH might, in turn, contribute to killing of cancer cells. On the other hand, there is great concern about toxicity in the dark of TiO2 nanoparticles in general. In this work, we have investigated the biocompatibility of TiO2 PNSs of the anatase crystal form (length between 100 and 300 nm and width 50 nm) in the dark with immune cells and light-induced cytotoxicity on several cancer cell lines. The effects of the treatment of different cell lines with several concentrations of TiO2 PNSs suspensions showed the specifics of cells’ viability and the intracellular localization. The results of in vitro studies obtained by cytotoxicity assays adjusted to individual cell lines’ metabolism point towards the biocompatibility of TiO2 PNSs at low and moderate concentrations in the dark, which neither kill the cells, nor induce activation of the immune system cells. Laser scanning confocal microscopy revealed that PNSs are taken up by cells, and insight into the intracellular distribution was obtained in this study.

AB  - We consider a two-dimensional octagonal-diamond network with a fine-tuned diagonal coupling inside the diamond-shaped unit cell. Its linear spectrum exhibits coexistence of two dispersive bands (DBs) and two flat bands (FBs), touching one of the DBs embedded between them. Analogous to the kagome lattice, one of the FBs will constitute the ground state of the system for a proper sign choice of the Hamiltonian. The system is characterized by two different flat-band fundamental octagonal compactons, originating from the destructive interference of fully geometric nature. In the presence of a nonlinear amplitude (on-site) perturbation, the single-octagon linear modes continue into one-parameter families of nonlinear compact modes with the same amplitude and phase structure. However, numerical stability analysis indicates that all strictly compact nonlinear modes are unstable, either purely exponentially or with oscillatory instabilities, for weak and intermediate nonlinearities and sufficiently large system sizes. Stabilization may appear in certain ranges for finite systems and, for the compacton originating from the band at the spectral edge, also in a regime of very large focusing nonlinearities. In contrast to the kagome lattice, the latter compacton family will become unstable already for arbitrarily weak defocusing nonlinearity for large enough systems. We show analytically the existence of a critical system size consisting of 12 octagon rings, such that the ground state for weak defocusing nonlinearity is a stable single compacton for smaller systems, and a continuation of a nontrivial, noncompact linear combination of single compacton modes for larger systems. Investigating generally the different nonlinear localized (noncompact) mode families in the semi-infinite gap bounded by this FB, we find that, for increasing (defocusing) nonlinearity the stable ground state will continuously develop into an exponentially localized mode with two main peaks in antiphase. At a critical nonlinearity strength a symmetry-breaking pitchfork bifurcation appears, so that the stable ground state is single peaked for larger defocusing nonlinearities. We also investigate numerically the mobility of localized modes in this regime and find that the considered modes are generally immobile both with respect to axial and diagonal phase-gradient perturbations.

AB  - We investigate analytically and numerically the existence and dynamical stability of different localized modes in a two-dimensional photonic lattice comprising a square plaquette inscribed in the dodecagon lattices. The eigenvalue spectrum of the underlying linear lattice is characterized by a net formed of one flat band and four dispersive bands. By tailoring the intersite coupling coefficient ratio, opening of gaps between two pairs of neighboring dispersive bands can be induced, while the fully degenerate flat band characterized by compact eigenmodes stays nested between two inner dispersive bands. The nonlinearity destabilizes the compact modes and gives rise to unique families of localized modes in the newly opened gaps, as well as in the semi-infinite gaps. The governing mechanism of mode localization in that case is the light energy self-trapping effect. We have shown the stability of a few families of nonlinear modes in gaps. The suggested lattice model may serve for probing various artificial flat-band systems such as ultracold atoms in optical lattices, periodic electronic networks, and polariton condensates.

AB  - Photodynamic therapy implies a combined use of a photosensitizing medicament and low-intensity light to cause selective damage to the target tissue—tumor. As potential medicament, we use Ru(II)(dcbpy)2Cl2complex, and in order to achieve better photosensitization properties, the Ru complex was attached to the nano carrier—TiO2nanoparticles. Additionally, this nanocomposite system was encapsulated in the phospholipid vesicles, which could be classified as small unilamellar vesicles, based on the technique of production. The complex-release tests were performed under light illumination, at pH 5, characteristic for tumor cells` interior and compared with the release pattern at pH 7, characteristic for the serum, i.e. physiological solution.

They are, on the one hand, an useful tool in advanced analytical chemistry, in particular for studying of biologically-relevant processes, but also important as functional parts of the systems designed for controlled and targeted delivery of medicaments for treatment of a variety of diseases and for imaging. So far, thousands of compounds and systems have been developed for the above-mentioned purposes, but there are only a few reviews dealing with these topics. The aim of this review is, thus, to summarize recent applications of nano-structured inorganic materials in the field of drug delivery, bioimaging and bioanalytics, and to give a prospective from the standpoint of biology-related applications.

AB  - By introducing evolving disorder in the binary kagome ribbons, we study the establishment of diffusive spreading of flat band states characterized by diffractionless propagation in regular periodic ribbons. Our numerical analysis relies on controlling strength and rate of change of disorder during light propagation while tailoring binarism of the kagome ribbons in order to isolate the flat band with the gap from the rest of the ribbons eigenvalue spectrum and study systematically its influence on diffusion. We show that the flat band plays a dominant role in the establishment of the diffusion for a given strength and rate of change of disorder, whereas the rest of the ribbons eigenvalue spectrum induces only quantitative differences in the light spreading regimes. Due to the universality of studied phenomena, our findings may be of interest in various disordered physical systems with flat spectral bands, ranging from photonics to ultracold matter systems and plasmonics.

AB  - Compact localized modes of ring type exist in many two-dimensional lattices with a flat linear band, such as the Lieb lattice. The uniform Lieb lattice is gapless, but gaps surrounding the flat band can be induced by various types of bond alternations (dimerizations) without destroying the compact linear eigenmodes. Here, we investigate the conditions under which such diffractionless modes can be formed and propagated also in the presence of a cubic on-site (Kerr) nonlinearity. For the simplest type of dimerization with a three-site unit cell, nonlinearity destroys the exact compactness, but strongly localized modes with frequencies inside the gap are still found to propagate stably for certain regimes of system parameters. By contrast, introducing a dimerization with a 12-site unit cell, compact (diffractionless) gap modes are found to exist as exact nonlinear solutions in continuation of flat band linear eigenmodes. These modes appear to be generally weakly unstable, but dynamical simulations show parameter regimes where localization would persist for propagation lengths much larger than the size of typical experimental waveguide array configurations. Our findings represent an attempt to realize conditions for full control of light propagation in photonic environments.

AB  - We studied the colloidal TiO2 nanoparticles as a carrier for controlled delivery of the ruthenium complex to the melanoma cell line. The system demonstrated slower complex release upon visible and increased release rate upon UV light illumination. Accordingly, the light-dependent cytotoxicity of the system was demonstrated on amelanotic melanoma cancer line. The cell death is enhanced by UV and reduced by red light in the presence of investigated nanocomposite system. Both components of the system may act as photosensitizers, by generating reactive oxygen species, which promote cell death. Thus, the system might act dually, as photodynamic therapeutic agent and as the light tunable system for metallo-drug delivery and it might be of interest for development of new more efficient drug delivery approaches by using a light as external stimulus.

AB  - We numerically analysed various localized modes formed by light beam propagation through one-dimensional composite lattices consisting of two structurally different linear lattices and a linear defect (LD) in one of them. The localized modes are found in the area between the interface and the LD, near the interface and around the LD. It has been confirmed that a LD narrower than the other waveguides (WGs) in the array is better potential barrier and captures the light better than a LD that is wider than the other WGs in the array. Also, it has been shown that a LD narrower than the other WGs in the lattice captures the light more efficiently than any saturable nonlinear defect (ND) of the same width as other elements of the lattice. On the other hand, it is obtained that the influence of a LD wider than the other WGs in the array on light propagation can be mimicked by insertion of an adequate ND whose width coincides with that of the other WGs. Depending on the defect size, its position and input beam parameters, controllable beam trapping, reflection and refraction are observed.

AB  - In this paper, the light beam propagation through one-dimensional photonic lattice, possessing one nonlinear defect and one linear defect, has been investigated numerically. Different dynamical regimes have been identified in terms of the distance between the two defects, position of the incident light beam, the width of linear defect, the values of nonlinearity and presence of the transverse kick. Strong localized modes on the defects, breathing and zig-zag modes in the area between defects have been observed. It has been concluded that the width of the linear defect placed next to the nonlinear one influences localization of the beam at the nonlinear waveguide. On the other hand, the nonlinear defect, regardless of the values of nonlinearity, have a small influence on the beam propagation in photonic lattice. It has been observed that the transverse kick of the initial beam leads to the distortion of localized structures. By launching the light beam towards defects, the reflection of light has been noticed. Presented results can be useful for different applications, such as blocking, filtering and routing of light beam through optical media.

AB  - Photo-responsive drug release systems are promising for drug delivery applications due to many benefits compared to conventional chemotherapy such as targeted, controlled release of a drug and reduced toxicity to healthy tissues. In this work, we report synthesis of the nanocomposite system based on carrier TiO2 nanoparticles and potential anticancer ruthenium complex, with light controllable release properties. Nanocomposite system showed biological activity and induced the generation of free radicals, which are implied in the efficient cell killing. The drug release tests demonstrated sustained release of the transition metal complex from the surface implying the potency for the controlled drug delivery system. Taking into account photoactivity of the Ru-complex, in the next step we have investigated the influence of green light on the rate of the complex release, and the results showed dependence of the Ru-complex release from the surface of TiO2 nanoparticles on the applied laser energy. Therefore, these characteristics make this nanocomposite system promising for the photo-responsive chemotherapy.

AB  - The localized mode propagation in binary nonlinear kagome ribbons is investigated with the premise to ensure controlled light propagation through photonic lattice media. Particularity of the linear system characterized by the dispersionless flat band in the spectrum is the opening of new minigaps due to the binarism. Together with the presence of nonlinearity, this determines the guiding mode types and properties. Nonlinearity destabilizes the staggered rings found to be nondiffracting in the linear system, but can give rise to dynamically stable ringlike solutions of several types: unstaggered rings, low-power staggered rings, hour-glass-like solutions, and vortex rings with high power. The type of solutions, i.e., the energy and angular momentum circulation through the nonlinear lattice, can be controlled by suitable initial excitation of the ribbon. In addition, by controlling the system binarism various localized modes can be generated and guided through the system, owing to the opening of the minigaps in the spectrum. All these findings offer diverse technical possibilities, especially with respect to the high-speed optical communications and high-power lasers.

AB  - Light propagation through composite photonic lattice containing a cavity bounded by the interface between two structurally different linear lattices and on-site nonlinear defect in one of them is investigated numerically. We find conditions under which dynamically stable bounded cavity modes can exist. We observe various cavity localized modes such as: single-hump, multi-hump, and moving breathing modes. Light propagation obstructions are phenomenologically related to the Fano resonances. Presented numerical findings may lead to interesting applications, such as blocking, filtering, and transporting of light beams through the optical medium.

Depending on the strength of nonlinear defect, input beam position and phase shift, different dynamical regimes have been identified. We distinguish input parameters set for which a regime of light propagation blockade by the nonlinear defect appears. Obtained results may be useful for all-optical control of transmission of waves in interferometry.

AB  - We investigate light localization in quasi-periodic nonlinear photonic lattices (PLs) composed of two periodic component lattices of equal lattice potential strength and incommensurate spatial periods. By including the system parameters from the experimentally realizable setup, we confirm that the light localization is a threshold determined phenomenon in a limit of negligible nonlinearity. In addition, we show that self-trapping can affect the localized light in the established setup only in the presence of strong nonlinearity. Guided by these findings we consider the possibility of governing light propagation by proposing a composite lattice system comprising alternating quasi-periodic parts with different potential depths and nonlinearity strengths.
