Hyperpolarized Silicon Particles as In-vivo Imaging Agents
This thesis describes the development of hyperpolarized silicon particles as a new type of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) agent. Silicon particles are inexpensive, non-toxic, biodegradable, targetable, and have unique ...
Wetting in Color
Colorimetric litmus tests such as pH paper have enjoyed wide commercial success due to their inexpensive production and exceptional ease of use. However, expansion of colorimetry to new sensing paradigms is challenging ...
Colloidal Quantum Dots and J-Aggregating Cyanine Dyes for Infrared Photodetection
The emergence of nanostructured semiconducting materials enables new approaches toward the realization of photodetectors that operate in the technologically important near- and short-wave infrared (NIR and SWIR) spectral ...
Self-Organization of Bioinspired Fibrous Surfaces
Nature uses fibrous surfaces for a wide range of functions such as sensing, adhesion, structural color, and self-cleaning. However, little is known about how fiber properties enable them to self-organize into diverse and ...
