Nuclear engineer’s work on biomedical imaging dyes featured in Advanced Science

August 23, 2022

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Dipanjan Pan, Huck Chair Professor and professor of nuclear engineering at Penn State, led a research team that recently published their paper, “Small Molecule NIR-II Dyes for Switchable Photoluminescence via Host – Guest Complexation and Supramolecular Assembly with Carbon Dots,” in Advanced Science. The research — which was completed at Pan’s previous institution, University of Maryland — focused on the advancement of small molecular NIR II dyes, which are used for various biomedical imaging applications. The team used fluorescent carbon dots to develop new, more advanced dyes that will allow for more accurate fluorescence imaging. The team’s research was featured on the frontispiece of the August 5 issue of Advanced Science.
