Lanthanide Fluoride Clusters: the most efficient molecular NIR emission sources currently available


The Nd28 cluster pictured here is significant not only because it is the largest lanthanide cluster known, but also because it has the highest NIR quantum efficiency reported for a 'molecular' Nd compound.
