Paper Abstract

We presently introduce a novel generation of optical nanoprobes, based on chromium-doped zinc gallate, whose persistent luminescence can be activated in vivo through living tissues using highly penetrating low energy photons from the red region of the visible spectrum. Surface functionalization of this photonic nanoprobe can be adjusted to favor multiple challenging biomedical applications.
