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).

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.
