Room temperature synthesis of upconversion fluorescent nanocrystals

Author affiliations

Abstract

Synthesis of nanocrystals that exhibit strong upconversion (UC) luminescence upon infrared excitation has been challenging due to the stringent control needed over experimental variables. Herein, we report a method to synthesize nanocrystals demonstrating high UC at room temperature in aqueous solution on graphene.
