Shining a nanobeacon: Single-label nanobeacon sensors were constructed by using graphitic carbon nanoparticles (CNPs) and their oxides as energy acceptors (see figure; FRET=fluorescence resonance energy transfer). Excellent sensing performances were achieved with simplified operation and lowered cost.
