Synthesis and properties of near infrared-absorbing magnetic-optical nanopins
Novel near infrared-absorbing iron oxide-gold core-shell nanoparticles in pin shapes were synthesized. The nanopins are superparamagnetic, with 35-fold better surface enhanced Raman scattering activities than the conventional core-shell nanospheres and 50-fold greater photothermal properties than solid gold nanorods. The nanoparticles will have important impact on medical imaging, molecular diagnostics and disease treatment. © 2012 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
