Multi-layer core-shell nanoparticles (YVO4
) consisting of silica cores (SiO2
), mesoporous silica (mSiO2
) intermediate layers, and Neodymium doped rare-earth phosphor (YVO4
) shell layers were successfully synthesized using the stepwise sol-gel method. The morphological structure and optical properties of the functional core-shell nanoparticles were characterized and evaluated by transmission electron microscopy (TEM),..... More
