Turn-on phosphorescence by metal coordination to a multivalent terpyridine ligand : a new paradigm for luminescent sensors

Some organic molecules can exhibit enhanced light emission after rigidification in a medium, in the formation of aggregates or after cristallization. A few classes of these molecules have recently been put forward in light of their potential as optical materials, organic light-emitting diodes (OLED), imaging units, fluorescent probes, chemical sensors, biosensors, and nanodots (to name a few). This approach can make use of non toxic organic molecules, which could be produced on a large (...)

Information on quantum states pervades the visible spectrum of the ubiquitous Au144(SR)60 gold nanocluster

H.-Ch. Weissker, H. Barron Escobar, V.D. Thanthirige, K. Kwak, D. Lee, G. Ramakrishna, R.L. Whetten & X. López-Lozano ; Nature Commun. 5, 3785 (2014)
Very small metal clusters have absorption spectra showing individual peaks, which reflects the discreteness of the localized electronic states. Smooth bands as known for the bulk metals develop with increasing size. Correspondingly, discrete absorption peaks in optical spectra give way to smooth spectra containing, at most, a broad localized (...)

Physical control of spatial localization of the production of gas bubbles from water electrolysis.

At a macroscopic scale, observation of the production of gas (oxygen or hydrogen) bubbles from water electrolysis shows that the phenomenon takes place everywhere on the surface of each electrode because the entire surface area of each of these electrodes is at the same voltage. This illustrates the paradigm of electrolysis where a physical parameter, i.e. the voltage difference between electrodes controls a chemical reaction. Here we show that both applying clever ac electrolysis voltages (...)

Nanometric Protein-Patch Arrays on Glass and Polydimethylsiloxane for Cell Adhesion Studieuses

F. Pi, P. Dillard, L. Limozin, A. Charrier, K. Sengupta
Nano Letters 13 7 3372-3378 (2013)
We developed a simple cost-effective bench-top protocol to functionalize substrates with nanometric protein patches with variable patch size, for cell adhesion studies. Patterned glass slides were used for advanced optical imaging of T-lymphocytes, to explore adhesion by reflection interference contrast microscopy, and the possible colocalization of T-cell receptor microclusters and the activating (...)

A field effect transistor biosensor with a γ-pyrone derivative engineered lipid-sensing layer for ultrasensitive Fe3+ ion detection with low pH interference

Field effect transistors have risen as one of the most promising techniques in the development of biomedical diagnosis and monitoring. In such devices, the sensitivity and specificity of the sensor rely on the properties of the active sensing layer (gate dielectric and probe layer). We propose here a new type of transistor developed for the detection of Fe3+ ions in which this sensing layer is made of a monolayer of lipids, engineered in such a way that it is not sensitive to pH in the (...)

Loïc Assaud, doctorant au CINaM, reçoit le "young scientist award" de l’E-MRS 2013.

Les travaux de Loïc Assaud sur la fonctionnalisation de substrats nanostructurés pour l’énergie sont mis à l’honneur durant le Spring Meeting de l’E-MRS de Strasbourg. Il combine les techniques de structuration électrochimique des surfaces avec la fonctionnalisation par Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD). Ainsi, il a réalisé des nano-condensateurs ou des électro-catalyseurs pour les piles à combustibles. Sa recherche donc a été récompensée lors du symposium intitulé Energy Conversion Applications by Atomic (...)
