Highly fluorescent, monolithic semiconductor nanorod clusters for ultrasensitive biodetection

Author affiliations

Abstract

We have developed highly fluorescent, monolithic colloidal CdSe seeded CdS nanorod clusters comprising thousands of nanorods. Their use in the sandwich assay detection of a model protein yields a thousand-fold improvement in the detection limit compared to individual nanorods, making them suitable for the detection of low abundance molecular targets.
