A photovoltaic device for converting light into electrical power includes a film (16, 26, 36) of silicon nanoparticles. The silicon nanoparticle film, which can be a multilayer film, has a photoluminescence response and couples light and or...
The method of detecting thalassemia by optical analysis of blood components is a spectral detection method that is based on the fluorescence spectra of a set of biomolecules, including tyrosine, tryptophan, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, and...
A method for increasing the shelf life of donor blood contemplates the following steps. In the first step blood is transferred to a sterile container and mixed with an anticoagulant as indicated in step 20. The anticoagulant and donor blood are...
The synthesis of silver nanoparticles from Pimpinella anisum L seeds includes providing a silver nitrate (AgNO3) solution, providing an extract of Pimpinella anisum L. plant seeds, and combining the silver nitrate solution with the extract of the ...
The method for discriminating between benign and malignant prostate tumors relates to analyzing samples of blood, urine and tissue by fluorescence spectroscopy in order to detect the presence of naturally occurring molecules in the fluids and tissue...
The method for lung cancer detection by optical analysis of body fluids relates to analyzing samples of blood, urine and sputum by fluorescence spectroscopy in order to detect the presence of naturally occurring molecules in the fluids that serve as...
Embodiments of the invention provide organosilicon silicon nanoparticle composites, where the silicon nanoparticles are highly luminescent. Preferred embodiments of the invention are Si—O solid composite networks, e.g., glass, having a homogenous...
