  • 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 ...
  • Frustration in biomolecules 

    Ferreiro, Diego U.; Komives, Elizabeth A.; Wolynes, Peter G. (2014)
    Biomolecules are the prime information processing elements of living matter. Most of these inanimate systems are polymers that compute their own structures and dynamics using as input seemingly random character strings of ...
  • Troika of single particle tracking programing: SNR enhancement, particle identification, and mapping 

    Shuang, Bo; Chen, Jixin; Kisley, Lydia; Landes, Christy F. (2014)
    Single particle tracking (SPT) techniques provide a microscopic approach to probe in vivo and in vitro structure and reactions. Automatic analysis of SPT data with high efficiency and accuracy spurs the development of SPT ...
  • Using the Plasmon Linewidth To Calculate the Time and Efficiency of Electron Transfer between Gold Nanorods and Graphene 

    Hoggard, Anneli; Wang, Lin-Yung; Ma, Lulu; Fang, Ying; You, Ge; Olson, Jana; Liu, Zheng; Chang, Wei-Shun; Ajayan, Pulickel M.; Link, Stephan (2013)
    We present a quantitative analysis of the electron transfer between single gold nanorods and monolayer graphene under no electrical bias. Using single-particle dark-field scattering and photoluminescence spectroscopy to ...
  • The use of gadolinium-carbon nanostructures to magnetically enhance stem cell retention for cellular cardiomyoplasty 

    Tran, Lesa A.; Hernández-Rivera, Mayra; Berlin, Ari N.; Zheng, Yi; Sampaio, Luiz; Bové, Christina; Cabreira-Hansen, Maria da Graça; Willerson, James T.; Perin, Emerson C.; Wilson, Lon J. (2014)
    In this work, the effectiveness of using Gadonanotubes (GNTs) with an external magnetic field to improve retention of transplanted adult mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) during cellular cardiomyoplasty was evaluated. As a ...
