Making Nd3+ a Sensitive Luminescent Thermometer for Physiological Temperatures—An Account of Pitfalls in Boltzmann Thermometry
Ratiometric luminescence thermometry employing luminescence within the biological transparency windows provides high potential for biothermal imaging. Nd3+ is a promising candidate for that purpose due to its intense ...
Comparison of Three Ratiometric Temperature Readings from the Er3+ Upconversion Emission
The emission of Er3+ provides three combinations of emission bands suitable for ratiometric luminescence thermometry. Two combinations utilize ratios of visible emissions (2H11/2→4I15/2 at 523 nm/ 4S3/2→4I15/2 at 542 nm ...
Insights on the Excitation Spectrum of Graphene Contacted with a Pt Skin
The excitation spectrum in the region of the intraband (Dirac plasmon) and interband ( π plasmon) plasmons in graphene/Pt-skin terminated Pt 3 Ni(111) is reproduced by using an ab-initio method and an empirical model. The ...
Toxicological Profile of Nanostructured Bone Substitute Based on Hydroxyapatite and Poly(lactide-co-glycolide) after Subchronic Oral Exposure of Rats
Novel three-dimensional (3D) nanohydroxyapatite-PLGA scaffolds with high porosity was developed to better mimic mineral component and microstructure of natural bone. To perform a final assessment of this nanomaterial as a ...
The Puzzling Potential of Carbon Nanomaterials: General Properties, Application, and Toxicity
Being a member of the nanofamily, carbon nanomaterials exhibit specific properties that mostly arise from their small size. They have proved to be very promising for application in the technical and biomedical field. A ...
