Short Description

Los Alamos National Laboratory - Express Licensing Program

The present invention includes a composition comprising nanophosphor particles capped with a ligand.  The nanophosphor particles have are less than or equal to 20 nanometers.  The composition has at least one lanthanide and at least one halide.  The weight percent of lanthanide phosphor is greater than or equal to 5%.  The light transmission of the composition in greater than or equal to 50%. 

The invention also includes a detector.  The detector includes a composition comprising nanophosphor particles capped with a ligand.  The nanophosphor particles have a size less than or equal to 20 nanometers.  The composition has at least one lanthanide and at least one halide.  The weight percent of the lanthanide phosphor is greater than or equal to 5%.  The light transmission of the composition is greater than or equal to 50%.  The composition is optically coupled to a photodetector that detects light emitted from the nanophosphor particles of the composition.
