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.

Plasmon-resonant Nanorods as Multifunctional Imaging Agents
out of 5 stars
28 Dec 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Alexander Wei
Gold nanorods have several outstanding characteristics as optical contrastagents for biomedical imaging. Their strong optical absorption atnear-infrared (NIR) frequencies can be used to generate contrast for opticalcoherence tomography (OCT) imaging, and is well matched for detectionmodalities...
Polymers for nanoparticle and nanocrystal formulations for drug delivery
15 May 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Stephen R. Byrn
Nanoparticles hold great promise for drug delivery applications. Nanoparticles might prove to be the only way to bring water insoluble, chemically unstable drugs to market. Because of this, this seminar will summarize the use of polymers to prepare and/or coat nanoparticles. Preliminary studies...

Semi Glass Concrete : An innovative nanoconcrete
13 Apr 2017 | | Contributor(s):: QUSI ALQAWASMEH
Concrete is considered as the most omnipresent material in the world which has many properties exist in different scales; nano, micro, and macro scale. Each property for a certain scale strongly depends on the same property for the nearest smaller scale. In fact, the nanometer- to...
