Doctoral dissertation about upconverting nanoparticles (Fri 13.11.)

MSc Vishal Kale will defend his doctoral thesis on Friday 13th of November at 12.00 in Pharmacity Auditorium.

The thesis topic is “Blue and Uv-Emitting Upconversion Nanoparticles: Synthesis and (Bio) Analytical Applications”. In the thesis the luminescent properties of the nanocrystalline NaYF4:Yb3+,Tm3+ particles are improved and their use as labels and internal light sources in biomedical applications is introduced.

Mr. Kale has been working in the Department of biotechnology but is jointly supervised by Mika Lastusaari. The work of Mr. Kale is a great example how you can combine the chemistry behind the synthesis developement and the use of nanoparticles in applications in multidisciplinary areas.
