Our Work

Our research involves the synthesis, spectroscopy and applications of lanthanide-doped nanoparticles.

We specialize in:

  • Different synthesis techniques of lanthanide-doped nanomaterials

  • Characterization by PXRD, DLS and TEM/SEM

  • Spectroscopic analyses of upconverting and radioluminescent nanoparticles

  • Biomedical applications
