Can Photons Make A Good Bandage?
City:Markham, ON
School:Marc Garneau Collegiate
Abstract:Photons are a form of energy. Living organisms require energy to repair wounds. It is hypothesized that photons promote wound healing in living organisms. A prototype device has been designed to supply photons to pre-defined cuts in plants using both infrared and green lights. Preliminary data tend to support the hypothesis that absorption of photons by living cells at the cut site stimulates wound healing.
