Lanthanide Luminescence Materials and Time-resolved Biophotonics
Dr Dayong Jin
Department of Physics and Astronomy, Faculty of Science, Macquarie University, NSW
3:30 pm Friday, 28 September 2012, EN103 Lecture Theatre (EN Building), Hawthorn.
In this talk I will showcase a multidisciplinary research area covering material sciences, photonics and biomedical sensings. I will focus on our recent development in lanthanide (rare earth) based bio-/nano- materials including the upconversion luminescent nanocrystals and methods manipulating the luminescence properties through core-shell nano-architectures. I will also introduce our recent development in biomedical instrumentation to challenge the high-speed background-free detection of trace amount of microorganisms and molecular disease biomarkers. Finally, I will showcase a recent success in detecting single nanocrystal within a micro-structured fibre dip sensor, and discuss how the advanced materials and cutting-edge photonics enhance each other and can breakthrough new science.
