Abstract

Similar to their inorganic nanoparticle relatives—semiconductor quantum dots (Q-dots)—Carbon-Dots have been recognized early on as conduits for biological imaging, particularly cell imaging. In this context, Carbon-Dots exhibit important fundamental and practical features that make them promising imaging materials. Specifically, Carbon-Dots can be engineered to possess bright luminescence (e.g., exhibit high quantum yield).
