Computational study of fluorescent silver clusters with implications for biosensing and bioimaging applications

Project Details


In this project we will study two types of silver nanoclusters by computer simulations. One type is stabilized by DNA, the other is protected by small molecules. They hold great potential applications as sensing toxic metal ions, small molecules and even gene. They could also be used for biological imaging. Our study will help to design these fascinating nano-materials on atomic level.
