Dual control: Hybrid silica-nanocrystal-organic dye superstructures comprising fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC)-doped silica cores, embedded CdTe quantum dots, and an outer silica shell display well-resolved dual fluorescence emission. Multicolor encoding fluorescent probes are generated by modulating the fluorescence intensity ratio of the dual emission by a simple post-encoding strategy (see picture). (Graph Presented).
