Abstract:
Clarkson University Physics Professor Igor Sokolov, along with Ph.D. student Yaroslav Y. Kievsky (now a research fellow at the National Research Council of Canada) and Clarkson undergraduate student Jason M. Kaszpurenko, had one of the most accessed articles in the nanotechnology journal Small.

Clarkson Prof & Students Have Most Accessed Article in Scientific Journal

Potsdam, NY | Posted on November 8th, 2007

Their paper on ultrabright silica particles was one of the journal's most accessed articles of a year from September 2006 to August 2007.

Sokolov and his team have discovered a method of making the brightest ever synthesized fluorescent silica particles. These nanostructured macroscopic silica particles have potential applications in medicine, forensic science and environmental protection, among many other uses.

The research was published in the March 5 issue of Small. You can see the full article at http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/cgi-bin/fulltext/114088575/HTMLSTART .
