Carbon dioxide laser resurfacing has been a valuable procedure for facial skin rejuvenation since the early 1990s, largely replacing medium and deep chemical peels and dermabrasion. The introduction of the erbium:YAG laser for resurfacing has caused confusion about its role.

We have studied the growth behaviour of sub-10 nm NaYF₄ upconversion nanocrystals of the hexagonal β-phase and the cubic α-phase. Ostwald-ripening of such particles in oleic acid/octadecene solvent results in broadening of the particle size distribution if the colloid contains

The advent of flexible optoelectronic devices has accelerated the development of semiconducting polymeric materials. We seek to replace conventional expensive semiconducting photodetector materials with our cost-effective composite system. We demonstrate in this work the successful fabrication of a photoconductive composite

The Journal of otolaryngology, 29(2), 78-82 (2000-05-20)
There are two lasers for resurfacing. The erbium:YAG laser and the CO2 laser both have different physical and physiologic differences when striking the skin. Therefore, each laser gives a different result. This article reviews the use of the Sharplan Silktouch

In this study, chitosan functionalized LaF3:Yb,Er upconverting nanotransducers (UCNTs) with controlled size and shape have been successfully synthesized by a facile one pot precipitation method. The chitosan encapsulated UCNTs show bright upconversion fluorescence upon excitation with 974 nm NIR region.

Journal of nanoscience and nanotechnology, 14(5), 3887-3892 (2014-04-17)
Water-soluble BaYF5:Yb3+/Er3+ nanoparticles with the surface functionalized by a layer of poly(acrylic acid) (PAA) were synthesized via a facile one-step PAA-assisted hydrothermal method. Bovine serum albumin (BSA) protein was conjugated with BaYF5:Yb3+/Er3+ upconversion nanoparticles via free carboxylic acid groups on

International journal of biological macromolecules, 72, 1308-1312 (2014-12-03)
In this work, we described one pot hydrothermal synthesis of surface modified water soluble YF3: Yb, Er upconverting nanofluorophores (UCNFs) using natural biopolymer chitosan. The obtained nanocrystals have undergone X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), scanning electron microscopy

The Erbium:YAG laser is a useful flexible tool for the surgeon interested in providing overall skin rejuvenation. With its unique wavelength, greater absorption, and less thermal injury, it can offer more precise ablation with greater safety and shorter healing times.
Chengyin Li et al.
Nanoscale research letters, 10, 144-144 (2015-04-09)
Nanosized rare earth (RE) hydroxides including La(OH)3, Nd(OH)3, Pr(OH)3, Sm(OH)3, Gd(OH)3, and Er(OH)3 with rod-like morphology are fabricated via a convenient hydrothermal approach. This strategy calls for the first preparation of metal complexes between RE precursors and dodecylamine (DDA) in
