Abstract

In this paper, an overview of selected applications of semiconductor (TiO2 and ZnO) and upconversion nanoparticles is presented. Depending on the size, the former are used as scattering and absorbing compounds in sunscreens and tissuemimicking phantoms; and in combination with gypsum - also as an antibacterial coating for indoor premises, while the latter, especially in combination with optical clearing - as a promising component for deep-biotissue imaging both in vitro and in vivo.
