Facile Synthesis of Multifunctional Nanocomposites with Tunable Luminescent and Magnetic Properties
A facile homogenous precipitation method has been developed for the synthesis of multifunctional, luminescent, and magnetic nanocomposites with Fe2O3 nanospheres as the core and europium-doped yttrium oxide (Y2O3:Eu3+) as the shell. The nanocomposites show both ferromagnetic behavior and excellent fluorescence properties with high emission intensity. The luminescent and magnetic properties of the multifunctional nanocomposites can be easily tuned by changing the synthesis conditions, which may find potential applications in biological fields.
