Abstract
ABSTRACT: Phosphor materials are currently being utilized in a wide variety of applications. The requirements for phosphors have become more and more stringent with smaller and smaller particles being required. In the Phase I program UES Inc in collaboration with Penn State University proposes to develop a novel approach for high rate production of high efficiency IR to IR up-converting nanoparticles. BENEFIT: Successful completion of the program will provide a commercially viable approach to produce IR to IR up-converting nanoparticles. Military application involves tagging and tracking of assets, identifying friend or foe, and for use in identifying disturbed soil in perimeter security. Commercial applications include fluorescence optical imaging for biomedical applications.
