Abstract

The recent discovery of fluorescent nano-crystals “Quantum Dots” have opened up a entirely new field of research in bio-medical imaging. Because of the semi-conducting nature of these nano-crystals certain properties are observed that conventional organic dyes do not have; resistance to photobleaching, very high quantum yield, and tuneable emission. By integrating this technology into existing procedures, the success of the procedures are amplified exponentially.
