Magnetite nanoparticles combined with polymers produce white-light emission under multiphoton laser irradiation. Understanding the photonic reaction in magnetite-polymer composites is critical for application of magnetite NPs as photothermal agents. Laser irradiated magnetite nanoparticle-poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) composites exhibit fluorescence due to the carbon double-bond formation resulting from the oxidation of the PMMA.
