Back Cover: Highly Luminescent Water-Dispersible Silicon Nanowires for Long-Term Immunofluorescent Cellular Imaging (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 13/2011)
Multicolored highly fluorescent silicon nanowires (SiNWs) are described by Y. He, S. T. Lee, and co-workers in their Communication on page 3080 ff. The SiNWs show potential in optoelectronic and biological applications because of their excellent aqueous dispersibility, strong photoluminescence, and high photostability. The picture shows SiNWs used as fluorescent probes in long-term cellular imaging.
