Intense ultraviolet upconversion emission from water-dispersed colloidal YF3:Yb3+/Tm3+ rhombic nanodisks

Author affiliations

Abstract

Intense ultraviolet upconversion emission has been observed in water-dispersed uniform rhombic nanodisks (side length of ∼14 nm and thickness of ∼2.5 nm) of YF3 co-doped with Yb3+ sensitizer and Tm3+ activator ions, when excited at ∼980 nm.
