Lanthanides have long been studied for their unique optical properties, having well defined emission bands, large Stokes shifts, and long fluorescence lifetimes. Small synthetic Lanthanide Binding Peptides LBPs offer a framework for developing novel materials with unique visible and near infrared VISNIR excitationemission properties. To understand the extent to which the LBP framework can be used to tune excitation spectra to different wavelengths, we propose to explore the operational space of LBP and LBP-derived VISNIR materials using high-throughput genetic engineering, scanning antenna molecules for amplification across the VISNIR spectra and examining the potential for LBP supramolecular particles and nanomaterials to increasechange LBP performance.
