Our review article “Optical Tweezers Approaches for Probing Multiscale Protein Mechanics and Assembly,” written in collaboration with Prof. Nancy Forde from Simon Fraser University, has been added to the Frontier in Physics Research Topic collection “Optical Trapping and Nanosurgery.” The collection can be downloaded (PDF or EPUB) from the link above.
I am happy to report that the results of single-particle experiements on fluorescent fiducial markers by PhD candidate Jantina and bachelor student Tom have been published in the journal “Scientific Research“.
Congratulations to Jacobine for her paper “Incorporation of Ln-Doped LaPO4 Nanocrystals as Luminescent Markers in Silica Nanoparticles” that was just published in Nanoscale Research Letters. In this letter, Jacobine presents her work on the synthesis of rare-earth-doped Lanthanide ion nanocrystals of 4 to 8 nm in size. She also shows that she can control the grow of a silica sphere around this core. Both on their own, as well inside the silica sphere, these cores show sharp emission lines from the dopant europium and terbium, thus providing unique optical labels for silica nanoparticles.
Her work is done within the European Union FP7 project Guidenano.
Our paper “3D-Printed External Light Trap for Solar Cells” has been accepted for publication in Progress in Photovoltaics: Research and Applications.
