  • The above image shows the way in which snowflake-shaped gold nanostars cluster on a graphene sheet.

    undefined

  • "So we started exploring how these gold nanostars are formed," Berry said.

    undefined

  • We can control the size of these nanostars and have characterized the mechanism of nucleation and growth of these nanostructures.

    undefined

  • Berry said the presence of graphene is critical for the formation of the gold nanostars.

    undefined

  • They named these islands snowflake-shaped gold nanostars, or SFGNs.

    undefined

  • Researchers at Purdue University have created magnetically responsive gold nanostars that may offer a new approach to biomedical imaging.

    THE MEDICAL NEWS

  • After initial data are collected, mathematical operations such as Fourier transforms can be applied to obtain frequency information from the pulsating light signals, allowing the twinkling nanostars to be easily picked out.

    THE MEDICAL NEWS

  • This gives nanostars the appearance of twinkling at rates that can be precisely controlled by the speed of the rotating magnetic field.

    THE MEDICAL NEWS

  • The camera collected images at 120 frames per second, capturing the signal from the nanostars as they spun at approximately 5 revolutions per second.
