The “gold standard” for nanothermometry: The application of ultrasmall, near-IR-emitting fluorescent gold nanoclusters (AuNCs) for temperature sensing has been explored. AuNC-based fluorescent nanothermometry features excellent thermal sensitivity and simultaneous temperature sensing and imaging in HeLa cells.
