Lanthanide-doped luminescent nanoparticles (NPs) have evoked considerable interest due to their superior features, such as sharp f–f emission peaks, a long photoluminescence (PL) lifetime, low toxicity, and high resistance to photobleaching, which make them extremely suitable for use as alternatives to organic fluorescent dyes or quantum dots for various bioapplications. Particularly for in vivo bioimaging, there are some rigorous requirements for bioprobes, such as bright luminescence, small… CONTINUE READING
