Simultaneous optical monitoring of the overgrowth modes of individual asymmetric hybrid nanoparticles.

Nanoparticles that combine domains with different compositions (e.g., noble metals, iron oxide, organic compounds, or polymer) have attracted considerable interest for biomedical applications, because two or more important functions, for example, targeting, imaging, and therapy, can be combined into a single nanoparticle, and such a particle would increase… CONTINUE READING
