Photodynamic inactivation (PDI) may be a very promising alternative method for the antimicrobial treatment of periodontitis. Several studies have demonstrated the sensitivity of subgingival flora to PDI using toluidine blue, methylene blue, and chlorin e6 derivatives. In the present study we report the activity of the Fotolon sensitizer, composed of chlorin(More)
Pure cubic phase ultra-small a-NaYF 4 :4 % Eu 3? colloidal nanoparticles were synthesized by thermal decomposition reaction using three various capping ligands, i.e., oleic acid, trioctylphosphine oxide, and hexadecylamine. To expose as many Eu 3? ions as possible to interactions with the surface-bounded ligands, the nanoparticles were fabricated to have(More)
Laser induced white light emission was observed from porous graphene foam irradiated with a focused continuous wave beam of the infrared laser diode. It was found that the intensity of the emission increases exponentially with increasing laser power density, having a saturation level at ca. 1.5 W and being characterized by stable emission conditions. It was(More)
An innovative approach for up-converting nanoparticles adaptation for bio-related and theranostic applications is presented. We have successfully encapsulated multiple, ~8 nm in size NaYF4 nanoparticles inside the polymeric nanocarriers with average size of ~150 nm. The initial coating of nanoparticles surfaces was preserved due to the hydrophobic(More)
The synthesis, morphological characterization , and optical properties of colloidal, Eu(III) doped Gd 2 O 3 nanoparticles with different sizes and shapes are presented. Utilizing wet chemical techniques and various synthesis routes, we were able to obtain spherical, nanodisk, nanotripod, and nanotri-angle-like morphology of Gd 2 O 3 :Eu 3? nanoparticles.(More)
The paper presents structural and luminescence studies of two lanthanide phosphate composites codoped with different concentrations of Eu<sup>3+</sup> and Yb<sup>3+</sup> ions. The powders of polycrystalline phosphates were synthesized by the modified Pechini method. The composition and morphology of the samples were characterized using inductively coupled(More)
