Dr. Nadeau's work has two main branches: one, to characterize the basic photophysics of nanoparticle probes for fluorescence, CT, and MR imaging. This work includes steady-state and time resolved spectroscopy, electron microscopy, XPR, particle sizing, and blinking analysis. Collaborators are at McGill, the University of Maine and USC.
The second branch involves investigation of the biological effects of nanoparticles, including their toxicity to the environment and their possible use as anti-cancer drugs. Collaborators are with the Radiation Physics group at McGill, and at UCSB.
