Scholarcy highlights

  • The use of semiconductor nanocrystals as fluorescent labels for multiphoton microscopy enables multicolor imaging in demanding biological environments such as living tissue
  • In higher viscosity solvents such as hexadecane, the diffusion coefficients scaled as expected. These diffusion coefficients are not altered by sonication, and TEM images reveal predominantly monodispersed particles
