Electrodes in dye sensitised solar cells are typically nanocrystalline anatase TiO2 with a majority (1 0 1) surface exposed. Generally the sensitising dye employs a carboxylic anchoring moiety through which it adheres to the TiO2 surface. Recent interest in exploiting the properties of differing TiO2 electrode morphologies, such as rutile nanorods exposing ...

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 ...

The myelin sheath is essential for the rapid and efficient propagation of action potentials. However, our understanding of the basic molecular mechanisms that regulate myelination, demyelination and remyelination is limited. Schwann cells produce myelin in the peripheral nervous system and remain associated with the axons of peripheral neurons throughout axonal ...

BaTi0.95Fe0.05O3-δ has been suggested to be an intrinsic dilute magnetic oxide with a clear dependence of magnetism on oxygen vacancy concentration. However, it has also been shown that the dopant Fe ions distribute themselves rather inhomogeneously within the lattice, though without disrupting the crystal phase of the parent BaTiO3. With ...

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 ...
