Design of irreversible optical nanothermometers for thermal ablations

Author affiliations

Abstract

Nanothermometers composed from a gold nanorod core, temperature sensitive linker and fluorescent dye are reported. The nanothermometers have low fluorescence due to a self-quenching mechanism at temperatures below 50 °C and become highly fluorescence above 70 °C.
