Upconversion (UC) process in lanthanide-doped nanomaterials has attracted great research interest for its extensive biological applications in vitro and in vivo, benefiting from the high tissue penetration depth of near-infrared excitation light and low autofluorescence background. However, the 980 nm laser, typically used to trigger the Yb(3+)-sensitized UC process, is strongly absorbed by water in biological structures and could cause severe overheating effect. In this article, we report the… CONTINUE READING
