    Investigation of Gd2O3: Er3+/Yb3+ Upconversion Nanoparticles (UCNPs) as a Multi‐model Contrast Agent for Functional Optical Coherence Tomography

    Currently, upconversion nanoparticles (UCNPs) implanted as a contrast agent for optical coherence tomography (OCT) system due to its biocompatibility, anti-stock emission, narrow emission bandwidth non-photobleaching effects etc., but it was not used as multi model imaging probe. We synthesized multimodal imaging probe having upconversion property along with paramagnetic property and used as dual contrast agents for Photothermal Optical Coherence Tomography (PTOCT) and Magnetomotive Optical Coherence Tomography (MMOCT). The synthesized Gd 2 O 3 :Er 3+ /Yb 3+ UCNPs shows the bright yellow upconversion emission, biocompatibility with hydrophilic property. A custom built SSOCT setup modified for PTOCT and MMOCT imaging along ...
