Research may lead to a high-quality, nanosized, clean light source for biomedical applications and beyond

Researchers at UMass Chan Medical School and North Carolina State University have developed a superfluorescence crystal nanoparticle that uses near-infrared light, a wave-length of light beyond what humans can see, to safely produce laser-quality light at room temperature. This discovery, published in Nature Photonics, has the potential to provide an easy-to-operate, nanosized light source for laser-based biomedical applications.

“Our efforts are contributing to the next generation light source technology for biomedical applications,” said Gang Han, PhD, professor of biochemistry & molecular biotechnology. “We believe that this superfluorescence nanoparticle provides a revolutionary solution to bioimaging and phototherapies that await a clean and intensive light source. Superfluorescence emission is an ideal alternative to lasers, as it is sharp and bright… Continue reading.
