Research scientists at the Leibniz-Institute for New Materials have developed luminous particles that can also withstand high temperatures. When activated by UV light or x-rays, they glow orange red.
A new 1D gold nanowire is proposed for novel nanoelectronics by researchers in China. The design of the new structure was achieved by carefully considering the stability of 0D, 1D, and 2D gold nanostructures.
A carbon-dot nanosystem is developed for photodynamic therapy, which releases a photosensitizer bioprecursor in cancer cells upon irradiation.
Nanoparticles have proven to be a powerful tool in fighting cancer through the development of personalized therapy options.
Researchers from Georgia Tech and Emory University have used gold nanospheres for the targeted delivery of anti-miRNA into inflamed endothelial cells to suppress atherosclerosis.
Researchers from Canada have used structure-dependent dual-wavelength emission to distinguish between intact and disrupted nanocarriers with ratiometric imaging.
Silk, elastin and collagen are naturally occurring fibrous proteins with a tremendous potential in biomaterial systems.
