    Abstract

    This communication demonstrates that hybrid nanocolloids can be designed and used to create nanoprobes for remotely sensing the temperature of aqueous media. Such multi-modal nanocolloids combine development opportunities not only for multimodal magnetic-optical imaging but also for non-invasive and remote absolute temperature optical monitoring suitable for hyperthermia treatments and cell poration.
