Abstract

Designed and fabrication of a novel magnetic hollow gold nanoshell complexes that incorporates iron oxide nanoparticles in the hollow interior. The combined effect of the smaller IONPs improved the overall magnetic properties of the design and MRI contrast capability. The overall complex could be synthesized in the range of 60-80 nm in diameter while still having a plasmonic peak in the near infrared region.
