The researchers re-designed existing antibiotics for specific clinical isolate infections via nano-engineered quantum particles which they introduced by special selection. They activated or de-activated the particles using key wavelengths of light.

Co-lead author of the study Prashant Nagpal, an assistant professor at CU Boulder's Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering (CHBE), says: “We’ve developed a one-two knockout punch. The bacteria's natural fight reaction [to the dots] actually leaves it more vulnerable.”
