Semiconductor quantum dots (QDs) have been shown to be highly sensitive to electron or charge transfer processes, which may alter their optical properties. This feature can be exploited for different sensing applications. Here, we demonstrate that QD-anthraquinone conjugates can function as electron transfer-based pH nanosensors. The attachment of the anthraquinones ...

Quantum dots (QDs) have tremendous potential for biomedical imaging, including super-resolution techniques that permit imaging below the diffraction limit. However, most QDs are produced via organic methods, and hence require surface treatment to render them water-soluble for biological applications. Previously, we reported a micelle-templating method that yields nanocomposites containing multiple ...

Polymer micro/nano-actuators are attracting tremendous interest due to their potential applications in micro/nano-mechanical systems and lab-on-a-chip systems. To achieve this, thin films of stimuli-responsive polymers are required to be patterned at the micro/nanometer scale, and also to possess highly ordered orientation in the responsive component. We demonstrate here that nanoscale ...
