Skin-inspired coating that’s as hard as teeth and can heal itself

Self-healing smart coatings could someday make scratches on cell phones a thing of the past. But researchers often have to compromise between strength and the ability to self-repair when developing these materials. Now, one group reports the development of a smart coating that is as hard as tooth enamel on the outside but can heal itself like skin can.

Precisely tailoring the dynamics of upconversion luminescence

Researchers have significantly improved the fundamental understanding of photon upconversion in nanoparticles. Through the collaborative approach of advanced spectroscopy and theoretical modelling they were able to establish that the migration of excitation energy greatly affects the upconversion dynamics. The researchers describe how ‘dopant ions spatially separated’ (DISS) nanostructures can be used for tailoring the upconversion dynamics.
