Water-soluble monodisperse single core nanocrystals (e.g., iron oxide nanoparticles and semiconductor quantum dots) as well as magnetic每optical hybrid nanoparticles have been synthesized using the amphiphilic copolymer poly(ethylene oxide)-b-poly (-methacryl- oxypropyltrimethoxysilane) (PEO-b-PMPS) by enhancing ligand exchange through aging. Multi-core clustered nanoparticles have been generated using the same copolymer by minimizing the ligand exchange by not aging. The resulting multi-core clustered nano- particles exhibit enhanced magnetic and optical properties, and have greater capacities for biomedical applications.

The quantitative analysis of low temperature micro-photoluminescence spectra of around 100 nanowires reveals that each nanowire exhibits its own individual spectrum. A significant fraction of nanowires exclusively emits at energies corresponding to either surface- donor-bound or free excitons, demonstrating that optical properties of individual nanowires are determined by the presence and location of a few impurity atoms alone.
