Horst Weller - Nanocrystals in materials and life science applications

Hamburg Photon Science Colloquium
Nanocrystals are already used for many applications in technical products for everyday life. The talk will describe actual developments such as quantum dots in display and lighting technology, ultra-hard nanocomposite materials and materials for the visualization of biological events or malignant cells or tissues. Different chemical approaches and factors determining the biological response on fully synthetic nanocrystals will be reported. We will present approaches to improve targeting specificity and concepts to optimize physical proper ties to increase the sensitivity for imaging. [more]
