Quantum Photonics on a Tapered Optical Fiber

For the first time, Scientist Ji Won Ha from Tokyo Japan used tapered optical fiber with subwavelength diameter waist, an optical nanofiber, providing a unique and all-fiber platform for manipulating atoms and photons. They demonstrated a polarized fiber-in-line quantum light source using a hybrid system of a single Nanopartz gold nanorod and single quantum dot deposited on a nanofiber.

Electrically-Driven Yagi-Uda Antennas for Light

For the first time, physicists from the University of W├╝rzburg have successfully converted electrical signals into photons and radiated them in specific directions using a low-footprint optical antenna that is only 800 nanometers in size. At the heart of this structure is a single CTAB-coated gold nanoparticle from Nanopartz.

Gold Nanoparticle Mediated Multi-Modal CT Imaging of Hsp70 Membrane-Positive Tumors

For the first time, scientists from the Technical University of Munich have successfully utilized membrane-Hsp70 functionalized Gold-Nanoparticles for tumor-specific spectral CT imaging in preclinical settings. As the central element of this study, PEG-amine-coated gold nanoparticles from Nanopartz were used, which were further functionalized with anti-membrane Hsp70 antibodies, rendering them highly tumor-specific for in vivo applications.
