Plasmonic Gold Nanostar Enhanced Multimodal Photoacoustic Microscopy and Optical Coherence Tomography Molecular Imaging
For the first time, scientists from the University of Michigan have developed an imaging technique that can visualize newly developed blood vessels in the back of the eye, named choroidal neovascularization (CNV).
Control of Light Transmission in a Plasmonic Liquid Metacrystal
Scientists from the Institut Jean Lamour (CNRS - Université de Lorraine) experimentally demonstrated the control of light transmission through a slab of plasmonic liquid metacrystal by an external electric field.
Electrically-Driven Yagi-Uda Antennas for Light
For the first time, physicists from the University of Würzburg 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.
