A new concept for hydroxyapatite in bone remodeling -the nano structure and response to mechanical strain

Abstract:

Because of their excellent biocompatibility and osteoconductivity, ceramic biomaterials are clinically utilised as bone grafts for the reconstruction of injured bone tissues. Modification of the ceramic surface, leading to enhanced interaction with osteogenic cells in bone tissues, can improve the osteoconductive properties of bone grafts. The fundamental concept for bone tissue engineering is to use the natural biological responses in the host body. Here, we explored the biophysical...

“Investigations into Photo-Excited State Dynamics in
Colloidal Quantum Dots"

Abstract:

Colloidal Quantum dots (QDs) have garnered considerable scientific and technological interest as a promising material for next generation solar cells, photo-detectors, lasers, bright light-emitting diodes (LEDs), and reliable biomarkers. However, for practical realization of these applications, it is crucial to understand the complex photo-physics of QDs that are very sensitive to surface chemistry and chemical surroundings. Depending on the excitation density, QDs can support single or multiple excitations. The first part of this talk addresses evolution of QD excited state dynamics in the regime of low excitation intensity. We use temperature-resolved time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy to study exciton dynamics from picoseconds to microseconds and use kinetic modeling based on classical electron transfer to show...
