Silicon nanocrystals are an extensively studied light-emitting material due to their inherent biocompatibility and compatibility with silicon-based technology. Although they might seem to fall behind their rival, namely, direct band gap based semiconductor nanocrystals, when it comes to the emission of light, room for improvement still lies in the(More)
The microscopic origin of the bright nanosecond blue-green photoluminescence (PL), frequently reported for synthesized organically terminated Si quantum dots (Si-QDs), has not been fully resolved, hampering potential applications of this interesting material. Here a comprehensive study of the PL from alkyl-terminated Si-QDs of 2-3 nm size, prepared by wet(More)
Aggregation of neuronal protein α-synuclein leads to the formation of amyloid fibrils, which are associated with the development of Parkinson's disease. The mechanism of α-synuclein pathology is not fully understood and is a subject of active research in the field. To tackle this problem, the fusions of fluorescent proteins to α-synuclein C-terminus are(More)
We have prepared colloidal solutions of clusters composed from porous silicon nanoparticles in methanol, water and phosphate-buffered saline (PBS). Even if the size of the nanoclusters is between 60 and 500 nm, due to their highly porous "cauliflower"-like structure, the porous silicon nanoparticles are composed of interconnected nanocrystals having around(More)
