    • Aluminum Nanocrystals 

      McClain, Michael J.; Schlather, Andrea E.; Ringe, Emilie; King, Nicholas S.; Liu, Lifei; Manjavacas, Alejandro; Knight, Mark W.; Kumar, Ish; Whitmire, Kenton; Everitt, Henry O.; Nordlander, Peter; Halas, Naomi J. (2015)
      We demonstrate the facile synthesis of high purity aluminum nanocrystals over a range of controlled sizes from 70 to 220 nm diameter with size control achieved through a simple modification of solvent ratios in the reaction ...
    • The Surprising in Vivo Instability of Near-IR-Absorbing Hollow Au-Ag Nanoshells 

      Goodman, Amanda M.; Cao, Yang; Urban, Cordula; Neumann, Oara; Ayala-Orozco, Ciceron; Knight, Mark W.; Joshi, Amit; Nordlander, Peter; Halas, Naomi J. (2014)
      Photothermal ablation based on resonant illumination of near-infrared-absorbing noble metal nanoparticles that have accumulated in tumors is a highly promising cancer therapy, currently in multiple clinical trials. A crucial ...
    • Thermoplasmonics: Quantifying Plasmonic Heating in Single Nanowires 

      Herzog, Joseph B.; Knight, Mark W.; Natelson, Douglas (2014)
      Plasmonic absorption of light can lead to significant local heating in metallic nanostructures, an effect that defines the sub-field of thermoplasmonics and has been leveraged in diverse applications from biomedical ...
