Quenching of CdSe quantum dot emission, a new approach for biosensing

Dyadyusha, L., Yin, H., Jaiswal, S., Brown, T., Baumberg, J.J., Booy, F.P. and Melvin, T. (2005) Quenching of CdSe quantum dot emission, a new approach for biosensing Chemical Communications, 25, pp. 3201-3203. (doi:10.1039/b500664c).

Record type: Article


The emission of CdSe quantum dots linked to the 5'-end of a DNA sequence is efficiently quenched by hybridisation with a complementary DNA strand with a gold nanoparticle attached at the 3'-end; contact of the quantum dot and gold nanoparticle occurs.
