Fluorescent C-dot nanocomposites as efficient photothermal agents and multi-modal imaging tracers

Author affiliations

Abstract

Fluorescent C-dot nanocomposites (MB-CDs) have been developed as efficient photothermal agents for potential thermal ablation of cancerous cells. They are also promising multi-modal imaging tracers for both dual-channel cell tracking and photoacoustic imaging of ocular blood vessels. These features endow them with competency to serve in biomarker-targeted molecular imaging as well as in photothermal therapy against cancers.
