Bioimaging is a sophisticated, non-invasive, and non-destructive technique for the direct visualization of biological processes. Highly luminescent quantum dots combined with magnetic nanoparticles or ions form an exciting class of new materials for bioimaging. These materials can be prepared in cost-effective ways and show unique optical behaviors. Magnetic Quantum Dots for Bioimaging explores leading research in the fabrication, characterization, properties, and application of magnetic quantum dots in bioimaging. Covers synthesis, properties, and bioimaging techniques Discusses modern manufacturing technologies and purification of magnetic quantum dots Explores thoroughly the properties and extent of magnetization to various imaging techniques Describes the biocompatibility, suitability, and toxic effects of magnetic quantum dots Reviews recent innovations, applications, opportunities, and future directions in magnetic quantum dots and their surface-decorated nanomaterials This comprehensive reference offers a road map of the use of these innovative materials for researchers, academics, technologists, and advanced students working in materials engineering and sensor technology.
