Prospects For Application of Upconversion Particles NaYF4:Er,Yb for Phototherapy

Background and Objectives: Functionalized upconversion particles allow for photodynamic and photothermal therapy of tumor with simultaneous temperature monitoring and visualization of the area of treatment. Upconversion particles can increase the depth of therapeutic effects due to the high penetration depth of the required excitation radiation. That is why they are a promising material for the combined phototherapy and simultaneous monitoring of biological tissue heating.
