Raymond receives DOE grant to study lanthanide luminescence

Lanthanide Luminescence

Chemistry’s Ken Raymond has just received a three-year, $450,000 grant from the Department of Energy to continue his research on energy transfer in lanthanide luminescent complexes. The grant-funded research aims at investigating the energy transfer process in lanthanide complexes with organic ligands through a unique combination of experimental techniques, time-resolved UV-visible light spectroscopy and X-ray emission spectroscopy. Raymond’s startup, Lumiphore, has licensed its lanthanide fluorescence technology to several biomedical companies.
