Rebekah Eliason for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online MIT researchers have developed an exciting new use for gold nanoparticles. Controlled by an infrared laser, the particles can be used to turn blood clotting on and off. This could be especially useful to doctors who are trying to control clotting during surgery and could promote faster, safer healing after surgery. Using blood thinners is the only way doctors can currently control the body's natural clotting mechanism. This is...
