The design of white-light phosphors is attractive in solid-state lighting (SSL) and related fields. A new strategy in obtaining white light emission (WLE) from dual-way photon energy conversion in a series of dye@MOF (LIFM-WZ-6) systems is presented. Besides the traditional UV-excited one-photon absorption (OPA) pathway, white-light modulation can also be gained from the combination of NIR-excited green and red emissions of MOF backbone and encapsulated dyes via two-photon absorption (TPA) pathway. As a result, down-conversion OPA white light was obtained for RhB+ @LIFM-WZ-6 (0.1 wt %), BR-2+ @LIFM-WZ-6 (2 wt %), and APFG+ @LIFM-WZ-6 (0.1 wt %) samples under 365 nm excitation. RhB+ @LIFM-WZ-6 (0.05 wt %), BR-2+ @LIFM-WZ-6 (1 wt %) and APFG+ @LIFM-WZ-6 (0.05 wt %) exhibit up-conversion TPA white light under the excitation of 800, 790, and 730 nm, respectively. This new WLE generation strategy combines different photon energy conversion mechanisms together.
