Mn-Doped Nanoparticles Shine In Multiple Colors
Colorful nanoparticles find their way into numerous applications, including solar cells, electronic displays, lighting, and cellular imaging. Cadmium-based particles, which rank among the ones most commonly studied and applied, could be used even more widely if they were tailored through doping to improve their emission characteristics and long-term stability and reduce their toxicity. For those reasons, researchers have turned to manganese. But they believed Mn-doped nanoparticles to be of limited use because the particles fluoresce . . .
