Journal cover features graphic developed by Dr. Hao Jing's group

Graphic from Hao Jing Group April 2020

Art from Dr. Hao Jing's group is featured on the cover of the Journal of Materials Chemistry C, from the Royal Society of Chemistry. This issue features a recent publication from the Jing group about multi-shelled upconversion nanoparticles. These nanoparticles, which exhibit significantly enhanced emission intensity, are synthesized via successive epitaxial layer-by-layer formation (SELF) strategy and used in dual-modal anticounterfeiting and latent fingerprint detection. See Hao Jing et al ., J . Mater. Chem. C , 2020, 8 , 5692 for more details. Congratulations to Dr. Jing and his group!
