Colloidal Lanthanide Doped Upconversion Nanophosphors for PDT Cancer Treatment and Bio-imaging

Combustion Synthesis

Nanoparticles have become a research focus in terms of both their fundamental and technological importance, especially in the case of luminescent materials because of a quantum confinement effect which leads to novel optoelectronic properties. Europium doped oxides are typical red phosphors in optical displays and lighting applications. The better quality of a high resolution display requires smaller size phosphors.
