So NIR and yet: Ytterbium–porphyrinate complexes that were conjugated with BODIPY dyes were prepared and fully characterized (see figure). Their photophysical properties, in particular the NIR emissions that corresponded to the YbIII ion, as well as the energy transfer between the donors and the acceptors, were investigated in detail. Moreover, the nonlinear (two-photon-absorption) properties of these complexes were examined.
