Clarkson University’s Physics Professor Igor Sokolov has his work, about the synthesis of fluorescent nanoparticles, featured on the materials science news website of Wiley-VCH (one of the largest world publishers of scientific literature and the home of the top journals in materials science). See Figure 1.

An article written by Hilary Gallagher, assistant editor at Wiley-VCH, titled “How to Outshine a Quantum Dot," describes the recent paper ("Ultrabright Fluorescent Silica Mesoporous Silica Nanoparticles: Control of Particle Size and Dye Loading") by Sokolov’s group that was published in the Advanced Functional Materials journal.

Her article can be found at the following site.

The paper authored by Igor Sokolov, Eun-Bum Cho, and Dmytro O. Volkov, can be viewed at the following site.
