Mechanisms of size-dependent lifetime quenching in luminescent upconverting colloidal NaYF4:Yb, Er nanocrystals
International Quantum Electronics Conference and Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics Pacific Rim (28 August - 1 September 2011 : Sydney)
Proceedings of the International Quantum Electronics Conference and Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics (Pacific Rim IQEC/CLEO 2011) incorporating ACOLS and ACOFT, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, 28 August - 01 September 2011, p.384-386
Upconversion decay rates in colloidal NaYF4:Yb, Er nanocrystals for biolabelling depend on nanoparticle size. Lifetime dependence on various quenching mechanisims is explained using rate equations to describe the evolution of upconverting green and red luminescence.
