Herein, a facile method to develop luminescent PS/AA/Rare-Earth-doped composites was presented. The PS/AA microspheres were first carried out via one-pot dispersion polymerization. Then, the PS/AA microspheres bearing free carboxyl groups were used as templates for surface chemical deposition of rare earth ions forming lanthanide-based nanocrystal-doped PS/AA composites. The morphologies and structures of resulting composites were characterized by SEM, TEM, FT-IR, TGA, and XPS. The photoluminescence properties of the composite microspheres were also investigated. By adjusting the amount of AA, the fluorescence intensity could be well-controlled. After blending with PVA into ink, the obtained PS/AA/Rare-Earth-doped composites possessed good fluorescence stability. The facile synthesis method introduced here has the advantages of mass production of security ink with fluorescent stability for anti-counterfeiting purposes.

Abstract A series of lanthanide-based nanopaper (Nd-nanopaper) was synthesized via a neodymium organic framework (Nd-MOFs)-grafted TEMPO-oxidized cellulose nanofibrils (tCNF) using a solvothermal reaction. Not using the traditional down-conversion visible emissions of anti-counterfeiting techniques, this Nd-nanopaper achieved down-conversion near-infrared (NIR) and up-conversion visible emissions. The down-conversion luminescent property of these Nd-nanopapers exhibited characteristic NIR lumine...

Abstract Digital rights management (DRM) of depth-image-based rendering (DIBR) 3D video is an emerging area of research. Existing schemes for DIBR 3D video cause video distortions, are vulnerable to severe signal and geometric attacks, cannot protect 2D frames and depth maps independently, or have difficulty handling large-scale videos. To address these issues, a novel zero-watermark scheme based on invariant features and similarity-based retrieval to protect DIBR 3D video (RZW-SR) is proposed i...

Photoelectrochemical cell technology is one of the simplest technologies, which converts light energy directly into electricity. The synthesis of cadmium sulfide (CdS) nanocrystals (NCs) was performed by the facile hot injection method. The NCs were characterized by different techniques such as XRD, Raman, UV-Vis, FESEM, and XPS. The XRD pattern confirms the phase pure hexagonal CdS NCs. The band gap of NCs calculated from the UV-Visible spectrum is at 2.40 eV, indicating good absorption in the ...

Metasurfaces have been widely studied for the arbitrary manipulation of the amplitude, phase and polarization of a field at the subwavelength scale. Holographic images with a high resolution and a large viewing angle can be reconstructed from phase-only holograms encoded in a metasurface. The quality of a holographic image can be greatly improved by using complex-amplitude holograms. However, realizing a high efficiency metasurface with simultaneous and independent control of the amplitude and p...

In this study, we report the synthesis and characterization of CdSe nanocrystals (NC's) by facile Hot injection (HI) method. The formation of CdSe NC's was confirmed by x-ray diffraction (XRD), Raman spectroscopy, and x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The optical properties were analyzed by UV-visible and photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopy shows an excitonic peak at 600 nm in UV-Vis spectra corresponds to the band gap of ~ 2 eV favorable for optoelectronic device applications. The Photoel...

Developing advanced luminescent materials and techniques is of significant importance for anti-counterfeiting applications, and remains a huge challenge. In this work, a new and efficient approach for achieving efficient dual-mode luminescence with tunable color outputs via Gd3+ -mediated interfacial energy transfer, Ce3+ -assisted cross-relaxation, and core-shell nanostructuring strategy is reported. The introduction of Ce3+ into the inner core not only serves the regulation of upconversion emi...
