Biodegradable nanoshells for optical contrast and controlled release

Timothy Troutman, Marek Romanowski

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


Liposome-supported arrays of gold nanodots exhibit plasmon resonance, making them useful as contrast agents in optical imaging techniques and degradable to components of clearable size. Encapsulated volume can be released with high energy incident light.
