After directly injected 10 nm golden nanoparticles (AuNPs) into the tarsal tunnel interstitial architecture of rats, AuNPs can be delivered to the brain bypassing the blood-brain barrier (BBB). With NaGdF4 NPs as agents, the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) results displayed that the agents exited in the perivascular interstitial space of carotid arteries and brain vessels and demonstrated that the transportation to the brain was not through the blood circulation, but based on the interstitial architecture and interstitial stream. This kind of transportation exists throughout the whole body no matter in physiological or pathological status, which is the pathway not only connecting but also with high efficiency.

Crystal-phase quantum dots (QDs) in nanowires, as an emerging confined system, show great potential for new quantum photonic devise. In this work, we report and discuss the anisotropy of the g-factor tensor and diamagnetic coefficient in crystal-phase QDs realized in single InP NWs, promoting the crystal-phase QDs for applications in spin-based quantum information processing.
