BACKGROUND Early adverse experiences such as sexual, verbal, or physical abuse and parental neglect have been associated with a higher risk of weight or eating problems in adulthood, and death or prolonged separation from parents during childhood has been implicated as a correlate of adult psychiatric disorders that are widely represented in obese subjects… (More)
We examine the population dynamics of multiple excitons in PbS quantum dots using spectrally resolved ultrafast supercontinuum transient absorption (SC-TA) measurements. We simultaneously probe the first three excitonic transitions. The transient spectra show the presence of bleaching of absorption for the 1S(h)-1S(e) transition, as well as transients… (More)
We examine the time-resolved resonance energy transfer of excitons from single n-butyl amine-bound, chloride-terminated nanocrystals to two-dimensional graphene through time-correlated single photon counting. The radiative biexponential lifetime kinetics and blinking statistics of the individual surface-modified nanocrystal elucidate the non-radiative decay… (More)
A hallmark to decipher bioprocesses is to characterize protein–protein interactions in living cells. To do this, the development of innovative methodologies, which do not alter proteins and their natural environment, is particularly needed. Here, we report a method (LUCK, Laser UV Cross-linKing) to in vivo cross-link proteins by UV-laser irradiation of… (More)
We demonstrate micro-photoluminescence measurements of PbS nanocrystals coupled to air-slot mode-gap photonic crystal nanocavities with Q∼15,000 and V<inf>eff</inf> ∼0.02 (λ/n<inf>air</inf>)<sup>3</sup>. The ultrahigh Q/V ratios are critical for applications in cavity QED, nonlinear optics and sensing.
Multi Wall Carbon NanoTubes (MWCNT) are one-dimensional structures with diameters ranging between 5 and 30 nm and lengths up to hundreds of micrometers. They show a metallic-like behaviour and enhanced field emission capability; their sensitivity to the radiation is very peculiar, depending on their diameter and chirality. The wide range of their bandgaps… (More)
