Biographical Information Jianquan Xu joined Winter group in 2011 as a postdoctor. Jianquan was trained in chemical engineering and physical chemistry. His graduate research has focused on the synthesis and property study of fluorescent dye-doped silica nanoparticles, and the development of targeted silica nanoparticles (SNPs) that could safely transport luminescent dyes into organisms to “label” particular biological structures.
Current Work Jianquan's current research involves the application of quantum dots in super-resolution imaging. Specifically, he is focusing on the synthesis of the photo-switchable Mn-ZnSe quantum dots. He is also interested in the micelle templated assembly of quantum dots, which can improve the properties of the quantum dots for super-resolution imaging.
