A near-infrared (NIR) responsive PtPd-ethylene glycol (PEG)-folic acid (FA)-doxorubicin (DOX) mesoporous nanoparticle was fabricated to achieve active-targeted imaging-guided chemo-photothermal therapy of breast cancer. NIR irradiation could not only induce the hyperthermia to kill tumor cells, but also promote the release of DOX to trigger synergistic therapeutic effect. With high DOX loading capacity, excellent photoacoustic (PA) imaging/ photothermal therapy (PTT) effect as well as active targeting function, our nanoplatform is a promising candidate for PTT/chemotherapy in tumor treatment application.

Four-parameter metrology: The overall quality of carbon nanotube thin films is thoroughly characterized by a four-parameter metrology, which includes the local tube density (DL), global density uniformity (Cv), local degree of order (OL), and the relative tube proportion in a certain orientation (Pθ) at a location. This four-parameter metrology will speed up the development of carbon nanotube-based transistor technology. Scale bar: 500 nm

An electrical model was developed to describe the electronic transport in CNT-based materials. Our model successfully fits the literature data and highlights the role played by different mechanisms (Luttinger Liquid, metallic and semiconducting behaviors) depending on the temperature range (3–300 K) and on the fabrication technique (floating catalyst carbon nanotube yarns or carbon nanotube array yarns). It appears that the CNT growth control is much more important than the fabrication technique to allow for high electrical conductivity CNT yarns.
