We report vapor-phase synthesis of single-crystalline free-standing Ag nanowires (NWs) and polarized surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) of a single NW. To the best of our knowledge, vapor-phase synthesis of single-crystalline Ag NWs and polarized SERS on an individual NW have not yet been reported. Silver has the highest electrical and thermal(More)
Myosin heavy chain (MyHC), one of the major components in the contractile machinery of skeletal muscle fibers, is found in several isoforms during myogenesis. During chicken development, embryonic, neonatal, and adult MyHC isoforms are expressed. Broiler chickens have been selected for fast and large muscle growth, whereas Single Comb White Leghorn (SCWL)(More)
We report on imaging living bacterial cells by using a correlated tapping-mode atomic force microscopy (AFM) and confocal fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM). For optimal imaging of Gram-negative Shewanella oneidensis MR-1 cells, we explored different methods of bacterial sample preparation, such as spreading the cells on poly-L-lysine coated(More)
We have measured local electric field vectors of local polarizaton on the nanoscale using gold nanoparticle functionalized tips as local field scatterers. In our experiments, the local field induces a dipole-moment in the gold nanoparticle functionalized tip, which then radiates into the far-field, transferring the full information about the local electric(More)
The significance of lymphatic system has gathered great attention for immunotechnology related to cancer metastasis and immunotherapy. To develop innovative immunodiagnostics and immunotherapy in in vivo environments, it is very important to understand excretion pathways and clearance of injected cargoes. Herein, we employed Tm(3+)-doped upconverting(More)
In the field of nanomedicine, long term accumulation of nanoparticles (NPs) in the mononuclear phagocyte system (MPS) such as liver is the major hurdle in clinical translation. On the other hand, NPs could be excreted via hepatobiliary excretion pathway without overt tissue toxicity. Therefore, it is critical to develop NPs that show favorable excretion(More)
We presented a scalable fabrication method for the preparation of multilayered nano-prism vertex (NV)-tips whose dimensions can be controlled for tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (TERS). The NV-tip had sharp vertices (diameter ~20 nm) originated from the chemical lift-off process after the angle-grinding process, enabling high resolution imaging. TERS(More)
Blinking photoluminescence was observed in single TiO2 nanodiscs (NDs) by using a laser scanning confocal microscope (LSCM)-coupled steady-state and ps-time-resolved photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopic system, while it was not significantly observed for TiO2 quantum dots (QDs). Analysis of the PL blinking time trajectories revealed single-exponential(More)
