Development and Evaluation of Approaches for Quantitative Optical Molecular Imaging of Neoplasia
This thesis develops and evaluates three approaches for quantitative molecularly-targeted optical imaging of neoplasia. The first approach focuses on widefield imaging of biomarkers near the tissue surface for early detection ...
Paramagnetic particle assemblies as colloidal models for atomic and molecular systems
Colloidal particles are ideal models for studying the behavior of atomic and molecular systems. They resemble their atomic and molecular analogues in that their dynamics are driven by thermal energy and their equilibrium ...
Synthesis mechanism, phase transfer and optical tracking of iron oxide nanoparticles
High temperature synthesis of nanocrystals in non-polar solvents typically produces materials with narrow size distribution and high yields. However, the mechanism leading to the preservation of monodispersity on depletion ...
Catalytic processes simulated at nano-scale: Growth of graphitic structures and functionalized graphene explained
Key dynamic processes at nano-scale, such as graphene hydrogenation and fluorination, and carbon nanotube (CNT) growth, cannot be observed in situ in real time. Nevertheless, such processes can be studied through complementary ...
A Multiscale Model of the Enhanced Heat Transfer in a CNT-Nanofluid System
Over the last decade, much research has been done to understand the role of nanoparticles in heat transfer fluids. While experimental results have shown "anomalous" thermal enhancements and non-linear behavior with respect ...
