Fluorescent imaging is a key tool in biology. On one hand, organic dyes are subjected to bleaching; while, on the other hand II–VI semiconductor quantum dots are photostable, but may exhibit some toxicity. Silicon carbide nanoparticles (SiC NPs) are a good alternative as SiC is chemically inert and considered as biocompatible material. However, their fluorescence quantum yield is weak. Plasmon-controlled fluorescence appears as a mean to enhance SiC NPs fluorescence. To this aim, new… CONTINUE READING
