Giordano’s quantum dot-bacterial reaction centre FRET study published in JPCL!

Congratulations to Giordano for the publication of his paper, “High-efficiency excitation energy transfer in biohybrid quantum dot–bacterial reaction center nanoconjugates” which has just been published in the Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters. In this collaborative work with Dr Mike Jones in Biochemistry, Giordano engineered a novel fluorescent bacterial reaction centre mutant which was conjugated to CdTe quantum dots. These two moieties formed a highly efficiency FRET pair allowing for broadband solar light harvesting across all visible and near-infrared wavelengths. The article is available to read here.
