Core-shell rare-earth-doped nanostructures in biomedicine


The current status of the use of core-shell rare-earth-doped nanoparticles for biomedical applications is reviewed in detail. The different core-shell rare-earth-doped nanoparticles developed so far are described and the most relevant examples of their application for imaging, sensing, and therapy are summarized. In addition, the advantages and disadvantages they present are discussed. A critical opinion of their potential application in real life biomedicine is given.
