New - Updated Literature Survey of NanoSpectralyzer Research for 2017-18
For the second year in a row, analysis of peer-reviewed research utilizing products from Applied NanoFluorescence demonstrate our multifunctional instruments are valuable for measuring a wide variety of nanomaterials.
Our NanoSpectralyzer products are designed for high sensitivity and versatility which makes them useful for optical characterization of many types of particles.* This is evident in a survey of published research that utilized a NanoSpectralyzer. Among recent published reports, about half of the research was done on single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs). The other half of the papers used NanoSpectralyzers to measure spectral data from quantum dots (QDs) and a variety of other nanoparticles.
Our user-friendly instruments often serve as spectroscopic workhorses, used routinely to characterize anything from visible absorption changes in cupric oxide nanosheets1 to samples of PbS quantum dots prepared for in vivo imaging.2
