Journal Article
Turyanska, L., Makarovsky, O., Svatek, S. A., Beton, P. H., Mellor, C. J., Patanè, A., …Wilson, N. R. (2015). Ligand-Induced Control of Photoconductive Gain and Doping in a Hybrid Graphene-Quantum Dot Transistor. Advanced Electronic Materials, 1(7), 1500062. https://doi.org/10.1002/aelm.201500062

In graphene devices decorated with a layer of near-infrared colloidal PbS quantum dots (QDs), the choice of the QD capping ligands and the integrity of the QD layer have a strong influence on the doping, carrier mobility, and photoresponse. By using... Read More about Ligand-Induced Control of Photoconductive Gain and Doping in a Hybrid Graphene-Quantum Dot Transistor.

Electron spin coherence near room temperature in magnetic quantum dots (2015)
Journal Article
Moro, F., Turyanska, L., Wilman, J., Fielding, A. J., Fay, M. W., Granwehr, J., & Patanè, A. (2015). Electron spin coherence near room temperature in magnetic quantum dots. Scientific Reports, 5, https://doi.org/10.1038/srep10855

We report on an example of confined magnetic ions with long spin coherence near room temperature. This was achieved by confining single Mn 2+ spins in colloidal semiconductor quantum dots (QDs) and by dispersing the QDs in a proton-spin free matrix....

We report on the spin-lattice interaction and coherent manipulation of electron spins in Mn-doped colloidal PbS quantum dots (QDs) by electron spin resonance. We show that the phase memory time,TM, is limited by Mn–Mn dipolar interactions, hyperfine... Read More about Spin manipulation and spin-lattice interaction in magnetic colloidal quantum dots.

Colorectal carcinoma (CRC) is the 3rd most common cancer worldwide, thus development of novel therapeutic strategies is imperative. Herein potent, selective dose-dependent antitumor activity of horse spleen apoferritin encapsulated PbS quantum dots (...
