Upconverting Er3+,Yb3+ activated β-NaYF4 thin films: a solution route using a novel sodium β-diketonate polyether adduct

Author affiliations

Abstract

A new tetraglyme adduct of sodium hexafluoroacetylacetonate [Na(hfa)·tetraglyme] has been synthesized and successfully used, together with the RE(hfa)3·diglyme (RE = Y, Yb, Er) complexes, in the synthesis of hexagonal phase NaYF4:Yb3+,Er3+ upconverting films through a facile sol–gel method.
