      Comparing intracellular stability and targeting of sulfobetaine quantum dots with other surface chemistries in live cells 

      Muro, E.; Fragola, A.; Pons, T.; Lequeux, N.; Ioannou, Androulla; Skourides, Paris A.; Dubertret, B. (2012)
      The in vivo labeling of intracellular components with quantum dots (QDs) is very limited because of QD aggregation in the cell cytoplasm and/or QD confinement into lysosomal compartments. In order to improve intracellular ...

      Intein-mediated site-specific conjugation of Quantum Dots to proteins in vivo 

      Charalambous, Anna; Andreou, Maria I.; Skourides, Paris A. (2009)
      We describe an intein based method to site-specifically conjugate Quantum Dots (QDs) to target proteins in vivo. This approach allows the covalent conjugation of any nanostructure and/or nanodevice to any protein and thus ...

      Localized magnetic fields in arbitrary directions using patterned nanomagnets 

      McNeil, R. P. G.; Schneble, R. J.; Kataoka, M.; Ford, C. J. B.; Kasama, T.; Dunin-Borkowski, R. E.; Feinberg, J. M.; Harrison, R. J.; Barnes, C. H. W.; Tse, D. H. Y.; Trypiniotis, Theodossis; Bland, J. A. C.; Anderson, D.; Jones, G. A. C.; Pepper, M. (2010)
      Control of the local magnetic fields desirable for spintronics and quantum information technology is not well developed. Existing methods produce either moderately small local fields or one field orientation. We present ...
