GTPN-COPE researchers have microfluidically prepared microcapsules with of a fluidic photon upconverting core and photonic shell from a triple emulsion as a template. The achievable dimensions and compositional flexibility of the upconverting core and photonic shell suggest a range of opportunities the future design of low-threshold photonic devices.
