Europium nanoparticles absorb energy of descendent light and generate some heat in the particle. The generated heat transferred to the surrounding environment and leads to increase in temperature of adjacent points to nanoparticles. Heat variations can be obtained by heat transfer equation. When Europium nanoparticles are subjected to descendent light, a part of light scattered (emission process) and the other part absorbed (non–emission process). The amount of energy dissipation in non–emission process mainly depends on material and volume of nanoparticles and it can be identified by absorption cross section. At the other hand, emission process which its characteristics are depend on volume, shape and surface characteristics of nanoparticles explains by scattering cross section. Sum of absorption and scattering processes which lead to light dissipation is called extinction cross section.Key words: Europium Nanoparticles, Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), 3D Finite Element Method (FEM), Heat Transfer Equation, Optothermal, Heat Distribution, Thermoplasmonic, Europium Nanorods, Human Cancer Cells, Tissues and Tumors Treatment, Simulation, Synchrotron Radiation, Emission, Function, Beam Energy
