Analysis and fate of pharmaceuticals and quantum dots as emerging contaminants in the aquatic environment
Environmental contaminants such as pharmaceutical residues and nanomaterials are an ecological concern as they pose potential undesirable effects on the biota. Pharmaceutical compounds and their metabolites are detected ...
In vitro imaging using stable, water dispersible luminescent silicon quantum dots capped with various cellular targeting agents
This thesis presents research on the synthesis, functionalization, and biological applications of silicon nanocrystals, also called silicon quantum dots (Si QDs). Over the past 20 years, semiconductor nanocrystals (also ...
Quantum dots: Structures, properties, and application
In this dissertation, we investigate the properties of colloidal and self-assembled semiconductor QDs, which are formed in structurally different matrixes: liquid and solid. We present nanosecond photoluminescence processes ...
