Lecture Title: Combatting Concentration Quenching in Lanthanide-doped Upconversion Nanoparticles


Feng Wang

City University of Hong Kong



Lanthanide-doped upconversion nanoparticles that convert low energy excitation into higher-energy emissions are promising for applications in diverse fields ranging from biology and life science to information technology. However, practical use of these nanomaterials is typically constrained by limited emission brightness associated with low concentration of optical centers (or dopants) in most nanoparticles. As dopant concentration increases, interaction of optical centers arises due to a reduced inter-dopant distance, leading to severe concentration quenching. In this talk, I focus on our recent efforts to alleviate concentration quenching in lanthanide-doped nanoparticles through core-shell nanostructural engineering. Examples will be given to demonstrate how to enhance multiphoton upconversion emission for exciting new technological applications.
