Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

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.
