On 15th August, Prof. Feng WANG from Department of Materials Science and Engineering, City University of Hong Kong gave an invited talk on “Controlling Lanthanide Luminescence in Core-Shell Nanoparticles”. In this talk, Prof. Wang summarized his recent works on the Lanthanide doped upconversion nanoparticles. Especially, he demonstrated how to tune the luminescence process and enhance multiphoton upconversion emission by doping the Lanthanide ions into separate layers in a layer-by-layer constructed nanostructure. With these novel nanostructures, Prof. Wang also demonstrated low threshold lasing and three-dimensional data storage. After this talk, Prof. Wang had a through discussion on the related topics with the students and researchers from IAPME.
Dr. Dr. Feng Wang is an Associate Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at City University of Hong Kong. He received his BE (2001) and PhD (2006) degrees in Materials Science and Engineering from Zhejiang University under the supervision of Prof. Minquan Wang and Prof. Xianping Fan. He then carried out postdoctoral research work with Prof. Xiaogang Liu at the National University of Singapore and the Institute of Materials Research and Engineering in Singapore. His research interests include the design, synthesis, mechanistic investigation, and application of micro/nanostructured luminescent materials. Dr. Wang is a 2018 highly cited research by Clarivate Analytics.
