Next generation theranostic devices will rely on the smart integration of different functional moieties into one system. These individual chemical elements will have a variety of desired chemical and physical properties and will need to behave in a multifunctional manner. Researchers have used upconversion nanoparticles (UCNPs) as a basis for superior imaging probes to locate cancerous lesions. The features of these nanoparticles, such as large anti-Stokes shifts, sharp emission bands, long… CONTINUE READING
