Magneto-plasmonic nanoparticles (MPNPs) present the possibility to exhibit their tuneable magnetic and optical properties with broad applications in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), cancer therapy, photovoltaic solar cells, biological microscopy, optical imaging, and biosensing. Present studies found that the optical properties (absorption and scattering efficiencies) of MPNPs using Fe, Co and Ni as magnetic materials coated with single noble metal (Au or Ag) or double (both Au &amp; Ag) coating layer, can be effectively tuned with the controlled size of core and shell layers.&nbsp; It is found that absorption and scattering LSPR peaks occur in Ultraviolet (UV) and visible region of EM for single core-shell MNP@Ag nanoparticles respectively. The absorption LSPR are found in the visible region, and scattering LSPR found in NIR region and also get blue shifted for single core-shell of MNP@Au nanospheres. In case of double core-shell layers of MNP@Ag@Au nanoparticles, the absorption and scattering peaks show spectra in visible and NIR region of EM spectrum and the absorption LSPR peak shifts visible to UV region and scattering LSPR are found in NIR region with broadening peaks of EM spectrum. &nbsp;It is concluded that the LSPR peak depends upon the thickness of the shell, size of core and material. &nbsp;The shifting of optical peaks towards the longer wavelengths depends on gold shell thickness whereas optical efficiencies depend on silver (as core or shell) thickness.</p> Pradeep Bhatia, Suram Singh Verma, Murari Mohan Sinha ##submission.copyrightStatement## Mon, 09 Oct 2017 00:00:00 +0000 Preparation and Characterization of Carbon Nanotube Deposited Carbon Fiber Reinforced Epoxy Matrix Multiscale Composites <p>In this study, desized carbon fibers were coated with carbon nanotubes using two diverse coating techniques, i.e. dip coating and spray up process, while the factors affecting the coating techniques were investigated. The morphological study revealed better nanotube coating on carbon fibers from dip coating technique as compared to spray up process. Later, nanotube-coated fibers from dip coating were impregnated with epoxy to fabricate multiscale carbon fiber reinforced epoxy matrix composites. The nanotubes on fiber surface were expected to improve the interlaminar shear properties of the multiscale composites. According to short beam shear testing, 14% increase in interlaminar shear strength was observed in composite containing nanotubes as compared to reference composite. Microscopic observation under optical and electron microscopes confirmed the void-free impregnation of fibers with epoxy along with the presence of nanotubes on fibers and in matrix in the vicinity of fibers. Finally, the mechanisms involving the enhanced interlaminar properties were identified and discussed.</p> Faizan Siddique Awan, Tayyab Subhani ##submission.copyrightStatement## Mon, 09 Oct 2017 00:00:00 +0000 Intensity Dependent Photoconductivity in ZnO Nanostructured Film <p>Many studies on the Photoconductivity of ZnO have been performed with an indication of reliable optical application due to fast photo response. This paper reports study of intensity dependent photoconductivity in ZnO nanostructured thin film with a thickness of 800 nm. ZnO nanostructured thin film on ultra clean glass substrate has been deposited using sol-gel spin coating technique. Conductivity at various illumination intensity has been measured using two probe method and found that photoconductivity increases by increasing illumination intensity. Photoconductivity can be utilized in the devices fabrication which are based on the decrease in the resistance of certain materials when they are exposed visible radiation. Photosensitivity and persistent photo conductivity also found to be increasing with illumination intensity. Photo sensitivity enhancement in Nanostructured ZnO is expected due to its large surface to volume ratio which is fundamentally more suitable for optical devices application. Persistent photoconductivity in the ZnO nanostructure thin film can be utilize in memory device applications.</p> Adam A Bahishti, Abdul Majid ##submission.copyrightStatement## Wed, 01 Nov 2017 00:00:00 +0000 Facile Synthesis and Characterization of Chitosan Nanofibers by Oil/Water Emulsion Method <p>A facial approach for the synthesis of surfactant free, biodegradable and eco-friendly chitosan nanofibers (CS-NFS) was prepared by Oil/Water Emulsion method. The morphology of the CS-NFS was examined by field emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM). FE-SEM images show the nanoscale chitosan nanofibers formation with sizes in the ranges of ~100-200 nm. Physiochemical characterizations of the CS-NFS were analyzed by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), UV-visible spectroscopy and thermogravimetric analysis. The CS-NFS are expected to be useful in electrical, optical and electrochemical devices.</p> Ragupathy Dhanusuraman, E Muthusankar, D Kamalakannan ##submission.copyrightStatement## Sun, 22 Apr 2018 00:00:00 +0000 Radiolabeled Nanoparticles in Nuclear Oncology <p>During recent years, a plethora of pioneering radiolabeled nanoparticles have grown to be an integral part of nuclear medicine as theranostic tools. Herein, we focus on the most representative examples of nanoparticles of the past decade, which have been investigated in conjunction with radioisotopes aiming to serve as drug delivery or imaging agents.
