Abstract

CuIn xSe Y/ZnS core/shell quantum dots are synthesized with an emission peak in the near IR and a high quantum yield, suitable for biomedical imaging in the optical window. After lipid coating and transferring to water, the quantum dots show good stability, retain their high quantum yield, and have relatively small sizes to optimize circulation and clearance post-injection (P.I.).
