5. I. Luminescent materials in nanomedicine What is luminescence? “Emission of light by certain materials not resulting from heat.” Why light matters? Central to linking cultural, economic and political aspects of the global society …and God said, "Let there be light" (fiat lux), and there …was light! The Book of Genesis

6. International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies UN has recognized the importance of raising global awareness about how light-based technologies promote sustainable development and provide solutions to global challenges in energy, education, agriculture & health. Light plays a vital role in our daily lives and is an imperative cross-cutting discipline of science in the 21st century Medicine revolution; XX century telecommunications revolution (laser, laser-diode, optical fiber, Er3+-doped amplifier); Infrastructure for the Internet

7. Contrast agents and biomarkers World market reaches more than one billion US dollar MRI

8. NMR Imaging (MRI) Contrast Agents Gd chelates, e.g. Gadodiamide, Omniscan Change the relaxation times (T1, T2) of 1H in tissues and body cavities where they are present Without CA With CA Defect of the blood-brain barrier after stroke shown in MRI (T1-weighted images)

9. Biomarkers Fluoroimmunoassay Immunological method for clinical diagnosis. Relevant in prenatal and neonatal screening tests, UV as well as to detect Energy transfer proteins, viruses, antibodies, tumor biomarkers and medicine residues. Cisbio-US, Inc. Long (ca. 10-3 s) 5D0 lifetime in the Eu3+ cryptate eliminates the fluorescence interference from other compounds or any unbound XL665. Concentrations of CD86 and CD28 species are quantify through the intensity of the XL665 luminescence.

10. Nanoparticles for multimodal imaging and theranostic The vision: a multifunctional cargo platform Imaging agents Stimulus sensitive agents Specific targeting moiety Biocompatible polymer Drugs Cell penetrating agents M. Ferrari, Nature Rev. Cancer, 2005, 5, 161

11. Many examples for bimodal imaging, e.g. MRI & luminescence Photos of cellular pellets excited at 393 nm Control (no NPs internalization) Cell internalized ϒ-Fe2O3 NPs negative contrast, T2-shortening Fe2O3 NPs Cell internalized T1- & T2-weighted MRI images of cellular pellets SiO2@APS/DTPA:Eu,Gd NPs positive contrast, r1=4.4 s-1mM-1 S.

12. Engineered design of theranostic UCNPs Tri-modal imaging & targeted delivery of anticancer drugs G. Tian et al., J. Mater. Chem. B, 2014, 2, 1379

13. II. Challenges for PL in nanomedicine NIR optical imaging NIR emitting dyes Advantages NIR photons penetrate deeper in biological tissues, compared to visible light; Tissues present less autofluorescence; Better signal-to-noise discrimination; Improved detection sensibility; NIR photons interact less with biological tissues, reducing the risk of disturbance or damage. In-vivo multispectral imaging systems (spectral deconvolution filters excitation wavelengths, 390–770 nm, from a white-light source) Mouse also imaged in X-ray mode.

14. NIR-to-NIR down-shifting PL (1 photon excitation) Core/shell NaGdF4:Nd3+/NaGdF4 NPs PL images of HeLa cells incorporated the NPS (λex=740 nm) G. Chen et al., Acc. Chem. Res., 2013, 46, 1474 In vivo whole body imaging of a mouse subcutaneously injected with the NPs Depth penetration of light Primary obstacle to applying in-vivo optical molecular imaging (OMI), light cannot penetrate more than 5-6 cm into human tissue; In-vivo OMI market will reaches $400 million in 2014

20. IV. Ratiometric temperature sensing Unavailability of a nanothermometer with: C.D.S. Brites et al., Nanoscale, 2012, 4, 4799

21. How it works? Part of the energy level diagram for Ln3+ aquo ions Energy separation between levels comparable to the thermal energy kBT Impossible to populate a single energy level Boltzmann statistics: the population will be re-distributed among energy levels with similar energy

22. |1> is optically populated (from the ground state) Due to the proximity of the |2> level (E), the initial |1> population is thermally re-distributed among the two levels The |2> population (N2) is (steady-state): exp ( / ) 2 1 N N E k T B   I1 & I2 are proportional to the corresponding populations: N C I  I2/I1 ratio: C 2 E k T exp ( / ) 2 1 1 C I I B   ΔE I2 I1 2 1 depends on geometrical factors and intrinsic properties of the emitting level (e.g. branching ratios and quantum efficiency)
