As the utility of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) broadens, the importance of having specific and efficient contrast agents increases and in recent time there has been a huge development in the fields of molecular imaging and intracellular markers. Previous studies have shown that gadolinium oxide (Gd(2)O(3)) nanoparticles generate higher relaxivity than(More)
A simple polyol-free synthesis route to Gd2O3 nanoparticles for MRI applications: an experimental Chelated gadolinium ions, e.g. Gd-DTPA, are today used clinically as contrast agents for magnetic resonance imaging. An attractive alternative contrast agent is composed of gadolinium oxide nanoparticles as they have shown to provide enhanced contrast and, in(More)
Organic electronics is a rapidly evolving field with vast number of applications having high potential for commercial success. Although a great progress has been made, many organic electronic applications: organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs), organic field-effect transistors (OFETs), organic solar cells, etc; still require further optimization to fulfill(More)
The cover mimics the substrates used in this thesis, which consist of silicon with a thin layer of gold on top. Abstract This thesis describes the preparation, characterization and application of a few biomimetic surfaces. Biomimetics is a modern development of the ancient Greek concept of mime-sis, i.e. man-made imitation of nature. The emphasis has been(More)
