According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Screening of the nanoparticles in fluid flows using epi-luminescence microscopy also confirm that the brightest, and therefore most suitable particles for microparticle imaging velocimetry (mu-PIV) measurements are those with the Ir(III) complex immobilized at the surface with fluorosurfactant, that is [Ir-4]@Si500-Z. mu-PIV studies demonstrate the suitability of these nanoparticles as nanotracers in microchannels."
