Asymmetric binary nanocrystals (BNCs) formed by a spherical γ-Fe(2)O(3) magnetic domain epitaxially grown onto a lateral facet of a rodlike anatase TiO(2) nanorod have been functionalized with PEG-terminated phospholipids, resulting in a micellar system that enables the BNC dispersion in aqueous solution. The further processability of the obtained(More)

The fabrication of uniform and patterned nanocrystal (NC) assemblies has been investigated by exploiting the possibility of carefully tailoring colloidal NC surface chemistry and the ability of polyelectrolyte (PE) to functionalize substrates through an electrostatic layer-by-layer (LbL) strategy. Appropriate deposition conditions, substrate(More)
Original nanocomposites have been obtained by direct incorporation of pre-synthesized oleic acid capped TiO(2) nanorods into properly functionalized poly(methyl methacrylate) copolymers, carrying carboxylic acid groups on the repeating polymer unit. The presence of carboxylic groups on the alkyl chain of the host functionalized copolymer allows an highly(More)
The performance of all metamaterial-based applications is significantly limited by the inherent and strong energy dissipation present in metals, especially in the visible range. In fact, these materials suffer from rather strong damping of the plasmon fields which can become obstructive for most optical and photonic applications. Therefore, eliminating(More)
Organic capped luminescent CdSe@ZnS nanocrystals (NCs) have been incorporated in block copolymer micelles, formed by polyethylene glycol modified phospholipids (PEG lipids). The obtained water soluble NC including PEG lipid micelles have been conjugated with bovine serum albumine (BSA). The entire process has been investigated by using optical, structural(More)
The unique sizeand shape-dependent electronic properties of nanocrystals (NCs) make them extremely attractive as novel structural building blocks for constructing a new generation of innovative materials and solid-state devices. Recent advances in material chemistry has allowed the synthesis of colloidal NCs with a wide range of compositions, with a precise(More)
Inorganic nanocrystals and nanoparticles have aroused increasing attention in the last years due to their original optoelectronic, thermodynamic, mechanical and catalytic properties, which are extremely attractive for fundamental understanding as well as for their huge potential in applications. The ability to strongly exploit the original potential of such(More)
Colloidal semiconductor quantum dots (QDs) are extraordinarily appealing for the development of light emitting devices (LEDs) due to tunable and pure color emission, brightness and solution processability. This last advantage of the QD-LEDs is even more evident in the field of infrared emission where the devices currently used are prepared by high cost(More)
