        "Stealth Imaging with Iron Nanoparticles" is an 8-minute video that tells the research story of Ralph Weissleder and Mukesh Harisinghani, who collaborated on the design of a clinical trial to determine if an injection of specially-designed iron-oxide nanoparticles could enhance a diagnostic image produced by an MRI machine to the extent that the spread of cancer could be accurately assessed. At least in the case of prostate cancer, as Dr. Weissleder tells our producer in this story, “The results were stunning.” Dr. Weissleder and Dr. Harisinghani's experimental cancer therapy is one of several new nanomedicine-based approaches to cancer treatment that is explored in the Nanomedicine Explorer kiosk, website and DVD (also found in the NISE Network catalog and here: http://www.nanomedicine-explorer.net/).

                Materials scientist and Christmas Lecturer Mark Miodownik demonstrates some of the weird properties of ferrofluid. This liquid is literally 'dripping with magnetism', containing a suspension of ferromagnetic nanoparticles that make the liquid responsive to external magnetic fields, generating unusual patterns, shapes and motion. Using a strong neodymium magnet and a large steel bolt, Mark demonstrates the strange and beautiful patterns the fluid forms in response to the magnetic field. Ferrofluids do not tend to maintain their behaviour in the absence of an external magnetic field and are therefore known as superparamagnets. You can also watch liquid oxygen exhibit its paramagnetic behaviour here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rz57PJ...

                  The EC funded NanoSustain project has explored, examined and developed new solutions for the sustainable design, use, re-use, recycling and final treatment/disposal of specific nanomaterials and associated products. In this video, filmed on location at the National Centre for Research of the Working Environment in Copenhagen, project partners discuss and demonstrate aspects of hazard characterization and impact assessment of selected environmentally and economically relevant materials products. Complimentary case studies and fact sheets are available at www.nanosustain.eu.

                      Jen Dionne Professor, Department of Material Science and Engineering, Stanford University Progress and Challenges in Plasmon-enhanced Photocatalysis and Photovoltaics March 6, 2013 | 4:00pm | ESB 1001 Abstract Metallic nanoparticles support strong, localized oscillations of conduction electrons – surface plasmons – that have recently enabled significant improvements in photovoltaic and photocatalytic cell efficiencies. While considerable research has investigated the potential for somewhat larger plasmonic particles (>20 nm) to enhance solar energy conversion, most catalytic reactions rely on the high catalytic activity of very small metallic particles. In this presentation, we explore the plasmonic and catalytic properties of such small metallic nanoparticles, with the aim of using plasmons to both monitor and enhance catalytic reactions. We first investigate the plasmon resonances of individual nanoparticles as their sizes are reduced from 20 nm down to less than 2 nm. We find that plasmon resonances are influenced by quantum confinement effects for particles smaller than 5 nm. Then, we study the photocatalytic activity of individual metal nanoparticles coated with titania. Shifts of the plasmon resonance probe addition or removal of electrons during a redox reaction, providing insight into charge-separation mechanisms. Finally, we explore the potential to achieve broadband solar absorption in photocatalytic and photovoltaic systems using upconversion. Calculations indicate that upconverting materials can significantly improve cell efficiencies, and we develop the experimental techniques to realize high-efficiency upconversion by tailoring the optical density of states via plasmonics and the electronic density of states via pressure measurements. Our single-particle measurements unravel the interplay of particle structure and function, and provide a platform for enhancing future photocatalytic and photovoltaic systems.
