The single-molecule detection (SMD) of individual fluorophores represents a powerful experimental technique that allows for the observation of individual membrane molecules in their different dynamic states without having to average over a large number of molecules. Spatial resolution in ensemble-averaging techniques such as fluorescence recovery after(More)
The current study reports the facile design of quantum dot (QD)-conjugated lipids and their application to high-speed tracking experiments on cell surfaces. CdSe/ZnS core/shell QDs with two types of hydrophilic coatings, 2-(2-aminoethoxy)ethanol (AEE) and a 60:40 molar mixture of 1,2-dipalmitoyl- sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine and 1,2-dipalmitoyl-(More)
Having environments that are able to adjust accordingly with the user has been sought in the last years particularly in the area of Human Computer Interfaces. Environments able to recognize the user emotions and react in consequence have been of interest on the area of Affective Computing. This work presents a project -- an adaptable 3D video game, Lost in(More)
The current study reports on the colloidal stabilities and emission properties of CdSe/ZnS quantum dot (QD) optical probes capped with a variety of thin, hydrophilic surface coatings as studied using confocal fluorescence correlation spectroscopy. These coatings are based on mercaptoethanol, mercaptopropionic acid (with and without conjugated(More)
