Research themes:  Excited state dynamics of photonic nanomaterials and biomedical applications

 

On-going projects:
- Image-guided and/or targeted photodynamic therapy based on upconverting nanoparticles
- Bio-nanoplatform constructed by luminescence upconversion nanocrystals
- Ultrafast spectroscopic study of photonic nanomaterials
- Surface properties of bio-functional nanoparticles
- Manipulation of nanoparticles for bacteria andmalaria detection in blood
- Biological chip construction based on quantum dots
- Nanomaterial application for multiple target immune assay

Specially confined systems, including nanosystems, are at the forefront of functional material science. The objective of our research is to investigate and design functional molecules and nanostructures with special optical properties which might lead to applications in, among others, biomedical field. The study is motivated by the scientific challenge it poses to physics and chemistry when the size of a system approaches nanometer scale.

One of our research themes is the intra- and intermolecular interactions and their interplay in condensed phases under different conditions, for example size confinement, extremely high viscosity, biological surroundings, among which processes like charge generation/recombination, electron transfer, proton transfer, isomerization and conformational changes, solvent reorganization, vibrationalrelaxation (vibrational cooling), often occur (see left figure, Chem. Rev. 104 (2004) 1929). The physical and chemical properties of the emitting elements at initial stage upon external stimuli, play a central role in our research. 

Our lab is facilitated with femtosecond fluorescence upconversion setup, picosecond time-correlated single-photon-counting setup, confocal microscope and other time-resolved and steady-state spectroscopic facilities. The powerful spectroscopic techniques enable us to monitor, in real time and in whole time range, the excited state dynamics of noble metals, quantum dots and discrete emissive centers, where the effect can be recovered of surface properties and quantum confinement of electron and/or hole to the photo-excitation and de-excitation dynamics (Nature Nanotechnology 5 (2010) 827 ).     

Our another research theme is to develop novel photonic nanoplatforms for biomedical applications. Typical example is the luminescence upconversion nanoplatform, where the discrete emissive centers - lanthanide ions - are embedded in a nanohost, and efficient IR- to Vis/UV photon upconversion is realized (see right figure). Different structured, biofunctionalized upconversion nanosystems have been developed in our lab with high upconversion luminescence and photostability, based on the fully spectroscopic study and theoretical modelling of their photophysics and photochemistry. It has been demonstrated that this system is superior in penetration and is applicable for the diagnosis and therapy of cancer cells and bacterials ( Chem. Soc. Rev.  44 (2015) 1331 - 1345; ACS NANO 6 (2012 ) 4054).
