In nanotechnology, a particle is defined as a small object that behaves as a whole unit in terms of its transport and properties. It is further classified according to size: in terms of diameter, fine particles cover a range between 100 and 2500nanometers, while ultrafine particles, on the other hand, are sized between 1 and 100 nanometers. Similar to ultrafine particles, nanoparticles are sized between 1 and 100 nanometers.

Experiment vs. Modelling: What's the problem?
05 Jun 2009 | | Contributor(s):: William L. Barnes
Progress in plasmonics has been greatly assisted by developments in experimental techniques and in numerical modelling. This talk will look at some of the difficulties that emerge when comparisons are made between experiment and theory. Through the use of four examples I will illustrate what...
Finding a Needle in a Haystack: Nanobarcoding for Single Nanoparticle Detection in in vitro and ex vivo Nanomedical Biodistribution Studies
08 Dec 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Trisha Eustaquio
Determination of the fate of administered nanoparticles in a biological system, or nanoparticle biodistribution, is critical in evaluating a nanoparticle formulation for nanomedical purposes. Unlike their small-molecule drug antecedents, nanoparticles pose unique challenges in the design of...
Highly Efficient Thermal Transport: The Application of Carbon Nanotube Array Interfaces
01 Feb 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Baratunde A. Cola
Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have received much attention in recent years for their extraordinary properties that through careful engineering may be leverage for the development of numerous advantageous applications. However, to date, only few CNT based applications exist in the market place. So when...
How Small is That?
11 Nov 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Jamie Ryan
This lab is designed to help students understand the size of nanoparticles compared to the size of other known quantities, such as a human being or a skin cell. After the size of nanoparticles is understood, the students will be challenged to come up with a way to “save”...
How to Engineer Human Microbiomes?
01 Mar 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Mohit Verma
We are developing tools based on nanotechnology, bioengineering, and analytical chemistry to understand causal relationships between microbiomes and their hosts, and to manipulate microbiomes for desirable outcomes, e.g. to shift patients from unhealthy to healthy states. One of these tools uses...

KIST/PU Ligand-functionalized gold nanorods as theragnostic agents
06 Dec 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Alexander Wei
Plasmon-resonant gold nanorods have been examined as multifunctional agents for imaging and photoactivated therapies. Nanorods can be imaged with single-particle sensitivity by two-photon luminescence (TPL) when excited by fs-pulsed laser irradiation, and have been monitored in vivo while...
KIST/PU Multi-Component, Multi-Functional Nanomedical Systems for Drug/Gene Delivery
23 Oct 2007 | | Contributor(s):: James Leary
In this brief paper we describe some of our recent efforts to construct multi-component, multi-functional nanomedical systems for delivery of therapeutic genes. We first describe the general philosophy of our approach. Then we describe three specific aspects of the overall construction in simple...
KIST/PU Phage Display Selection of Tissue-Specific Homing Peptides and their Theragnostic Applications
