nanoparticles and time-resolved fluorescence for ultrasensitive detection of prostate-specific antigen.
Figure 11 shows that the band intensities increase with europium
A solution without europium
was used as the reference.
This can be explained by LSPR which enhances europium
The following reagents were used during the sol-gel glass making process without further purification: Tetramethyl- orthosilicate (TMOS) (Aldrich 99+%), ethanol ([C.sub.2][H.sub.6]O) (Sigma-Aldrich, [greater than or equal to] 99.5%), hydrogen chloride (HC1), europium
(III) chloride anhydrous (EuCh) (Aldrich, 99.99%), Lab grade tin (II) chloride anhydrous (Sn[Cl.sub.2]), and triple de-ionized water.
The content of europium
(Eu) in sapropelites was defined by instrumental neutron activation analysis technique (INAA).
Importantly, the prices of Ngualla's main value drivers of neodymium, praseodymium and europium
, which together comprise 86% of the projects projected annual revenue, have shown the most improvement (Figure 3).

salts, terbium salts, and samarium salts, when associated with suitable organic ligands, can absorb light energy and transfer it to the central metal atom to give narrow emission bands in the visible region, usually described as an "antenna effect" (1), (2).
is efficiently used as luminescent center in phosphors for various purposes.
TAEK had established in its own 2007 report that the plant smelted nuclear rods containing europium
, normally used in nuclear power plants.
