  • Up-conversion luminescence in rare earth doped materials is an important approach for the optical frequency conversion as well an important aspect in the researches of luminescent materials. On the basis of the introduction of fundamental concepts of the up-conversion luminescence, the research history of up-conversion luminescence of rare earth doped materials was briefly reviewed and the up-conversion mechanisms including energy transfer, excited state absorption, co-operative sensitization, co-operative luminescence, two-photon absorbed excitation and photon avalanche processes in rare earth doped materials were summarized and compared with each others. Then, the up-conversion luminescence mechanisms for various rare earths doped materials were summarized and the host materials such as phosphors, crystal and non-crystalline solids for rare earth were introduced. Finally, the factors influencing the up-conversion luminescence efficiency were analyzed. It was pointed out that the absorptions of pumping light and emitting light, phonon energies of host materials, the choices of doping ions and pumping routes must be considered in the designs of up-conversion luminescence materials.

Introduction to up-conversion luminescence of rare earth doped materials

Abstract: Up-conversion luminescence in rare earth doped materials is an important approach for the optical frequency conversion as well an important aspect in the researches of luminescent materials. On the basis of the introduction of fundamental concepts of the up-conversion luminescence, the research history of up-conversion luminescence of rare earth doped materials was briefly reviewed and the up-conversion mechanisms including energy transfer, excited state absorption, co-operative sensitization, co-operative luminescence, two-photon absorbed excitation and photon avalanche processes in rare earth doped materials were summarized and compared with each others. Then, the up-conversion luminescence mechanisms for various rare earths doped materials were summarized and the host materials such as phosphors, crystal and non-crystalline solids for rare earth were introduced. Finally, the factors influencing the up-conversion luminescence efficiency were analyzed. It was pointed out that the absorptions of pumping light and emitting light, phonon energies of host materials, the choices of doping ions and pumping routes must be considered in the designs of up-conversion luminescence materials.
