Nanomaterials are extensively investigated due to better optical, electrical and mechanical properties in various applications.? In nanocrystals, the quantum confinement effect plays an essential role in optical transitions.? Nanocrystals have large surface-to-volume ratios.? Luminescent properties will depend on the size and surface structure of nanocrystals.? Various nanophosphors of novel formulations and processes of synthesis with better morphology, high efficiency, improved stability and longer life are being developed at SRI International.? Efforts are being made to employ these nanophosphors in medical applications such as photodynamic therapy, DNA sequencing, high resolution digital mammography, cancer diagnosis and therapeutics, bio-imaging, -dosimetry, and รข??tagging.? Advantages of applying these nanophosphors in LED based solid state lighting, 3D displays,? in defense as NIR sensors, and invisible markers, and? in security to sense nuclear radiation from WMD (biological and nuclear events), and authentication markers along with various process in synthesis and manufacturing will be described.? Finally, pros, cons and challenges (cost, environmental impact, personal safety, health risks and storage) in manufacturing of nanophosphors will also be presented.
