Abstract

In summary, we have described nanoparticle-based sensors in which the temperature history of the sample translates into NP aggregation and ensuing color changes. The operation of this system rests on the ability to photoisomerize the NPs in the solid state and on the solid matrix preventing the "metastable" NPs from spontaneous aggregation until a specific condition is fulfilled (here, T>TM). Future research on metastable NP materials can have ramifications for other chemical sensors, in which the metastable state relaxes upon specific environmental stimulus.
