Laurențiu-Constantin Șușu

PhD Student

Research Interests

Currently he is a PhD student and 4-year member of the NLMC group, where he realized his bachelor and master thesis. His expertise involves synthesis of colloidal gold nanorods with tunable longitudinal response, as well as their spectroscopic and morphologic characterizations. His main research topic consists of immobilization of gold nanoparticles on paper-based substrates for fabricating efficient low-cost nanosensing platfroms. He is also invoved in the investigation of inorganic nanostructures, with tunable and enhaced NIR emission, for applications as fluorescent contrast agents.
