Control of Green and Red Upconversion in NaYF4:Yb3+,Er3+ Nanoparticles by Excitation Modulation.

Author information

Department of Biomedical Engineering, The University of Arizona, P.O. Box 210240, Tucson, Arizona 85721, United States of America.


Control of the two strongest upconversion emission lines in NaYF4:Yb3+, Er3+ nanoparticles is demonstrated by varying the excitation repetition rate. This technique may enable new multiplexed sensing modalities based on multicolor luminescent nanoparticles, currently contemplated for biomedical imaging and diagnostics.
