Development of lanthanide-doped quantum dots for biosensing applications

Trivalent lanthanides will be built into semiconducting nanocrystals (quantum dots) to circumvent the disadvantages of both systems and to obtain easily excitable materials (large light absorptivity), ideal for biosensing due to the large difference in excitation and emission wavelength and the difference in luminescence lifetime of the lanthanide-doped quantum dot and the tissue, in which sensing will occur.
