Developing Mn-doped lead sulfide quantum dots for MRI labels (2016)
Journal Article
Turyanska, L., Moro, F., Patanè, A., Barr, J., Köckenberger, W., Taylor, A., …Thomas, N. R. (2016). Developing Mn-doped lead sulfide quantum dots for MRI labels. Journal of Materials Chemistry B, 4(42), 6797-6802. https://doi.org/10.1039/c6tb02574a

Magnetic interactions of Mn2+ions in lead sulfide (PbS) nanocrystals with protons in water are probed by NMR and MRI. A thin layer of capping molecules enables free solvent diffusion to the nanocrystal surface resulting in a decrease of proton relaxa...

Surface sensing of quantum dots by electron spins (2016)
Journal Article
Moro, F., Turyanska, L., Wilman, J., Williams, H. E., Fielding, A. J., & Patanè, A. (in press). Surface sensing of quantum dots by electron spins. Nano Letters, 16(10), doi:10.1021/acs.nanolett.6b02727

The nanoscale design of quantum dots (QDs) requires advanced analytical techniques. However, those that are commonly used do not have sufficient sensitivity or spatial resolution. Here, we use magnetic resonance techniques combined with paramagnetic... Read More about Surface sensing of quantum dots by electron spins.
