Abstract:

In this study, silica-coated nanophosphors were made by flame aerosol synthesis in one step. The morphology of the yttrium oxide doped with Tb ions nanoparticles was investigated. Finally, the effect of the silica coating on the biocompatibility of these nanoparticles was explored, and their potential as bio-markers is explored.
