Seminar by Dr Lyudmila Turyanska: Colloidal semiconductor nanocrystals: from device applications to medical imaging

Centre for Computational Physics

Dr Lyudmila Turyanska from our neighbouring School of Chemistry will give a seminar this Wednesday the 24th of February, at 3 pm (room JBL3C01 in the Joseph Banks Laboratories, building no 22 on the university map). Please join us in attending this interesting talk on colloidal semiconductor nanocrystals and their applications.

Colloidal semiconductor nanocrystals:  from device applications to medical imaging

Colloidal synthesis offers a flexible route to produce nanomaterials with properties tailored for specific applications. The optical properties of semiconductor nanocrystals (quantum dots, QDs) can be tuned by their size and composition in the wide range of electromagnetic spectrum from the visible to the near-infrared. Additional functionalities can be achieved by QD doping and surface modifications. We study the fundamental properties of colloidal quantum dots [1] and develop them for applications in nanoscale electronics, e.g. in hybrid graphene-based devices [2], and for dual MRI and near-infrared fluorescence medical imaging…
