Here, we report the use of rare earth element-doped nanocrystals as probes for correlative cathodoluminescence electron microscopy (CCLEM) bioimaging. This first experimental demonstration shows potential for the simultaneous acquisition of luminescence and electron microscopy images with nanometric resolution in focused ion beam cut biological samples.
