Magnetic Particle Imaging

Magnetic particle imaging (MPI) is an emerging molecular imaging modality that enables non-invasive, tomographic, unambiguous, sensitive, and quantitative imaging of the distribution of superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIONs) in a living subject. MPI signal is not attenuated by tissue and… Read More

Nanoparticle Synthesis and Characterization

Although magnetic nanoparticles have been synthesized since the 1960’s, most methods to obtain them yield particles with sub-optimal magnetic properties. Furthermore, many formulations intended for use in aqueous-phase result in rapid aggregation and precipitation in biological environments and in cell… Read More

Ferrofluids and Ferrohydrodynamics

Ferrofluids, semi-dilute suspensions of magnetic nanoparticles, are fascinating practically relevant examples of fluids that can be manipulated by magnetic fields. Although ferrofluids have been known since the 1960s, there is still much that is not known in terms of their… Read More
