Efficient photon upconversion at remarkably low annihilator concentrations in a liquid polymer matrix: when less is more

Author affiliations

Abstract

A green-to-blue triplet–triplet annihilation upconversion of 24.5% quantum yield was achieved at a remarkably low 600 μM annihilator concentration in a viscous polymer matrix. This was made possible by utilizing a ZnTPP-based photosensitizer with exceptionally long 11 ms phosphorescence lifetime. Higher 3 mM annihilator concentration resulted in lower 24% upconversion quantum yield.
