Photoactive Hybrid Nanomaterial for Targeting, Labeling, and Killing Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria


  • We thank Prof. Peters for the E. coli samples and S. Fibikar for helping us with the acquisition of the SEM images. We also thank the DFG (grant number GZ: INST 211/418-1 FUGG) for financial support provided for the acquisition of the time-resolved confocal microscope. This work was also supported by the DFG (A.H. and B.M.: SFB629), the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (R.Q.A.), and Fundación Ramón Areces (Y.V.).
