functionalization of qdots and their applications to cell
and animal biology.
Semiconductor Nanocrystals as Fluorescent Biological Labels
A. Paul Alivisatos*
Semiconductor nanocrystals were prepared for use as fluorescent
probes in biological staining and diagnostics.
Dot Bioconjugates for Ultrasensitive Nonisotopic Detection
C. W. Chan, Shuming Nie*
semiconductor quantum dots (zinc sulfide-capped cadmium selenide)
have been covalently coupled to biomolecules for use
in ultrasensitive biological detection.
