Summary of "Highly efficient infrared to visible up-conversion emission tuning from red to white in Eu/Yb co-doped NaYF phosphor."

Eu/Yb co-doped NaYF phosphors have been synthesized by the combustion method. The Eu doping was fixed and the effect of Yb doping concentration on the structural, morphological and luminescence properties has been investigated. X-ray diffraction analysis revealed that the phosphors consisted of mixed α- and β-phases, but the β-phase was dominant. All elements of the host and dopants, as well as adventitious C, were detected using X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The surface morphology showed a microrod-like structure with sharp hexagonal edges. Energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy spectra proved the formation of the desired materials. The photoluminescence spectra illustrated the optical emission properties of Eu in the red region when excited at 394 nm, while, under the same excitation, Yb ions gave emission at 980 nm. The up-conversion (UC) emission of Eu/Yb co-doped NaYF produced a white color at the higher concentration of Yb excited by a 980 nm laser, which was made possible by green emission of Er contamination (from Yb source) and blue emission of Eu ions. The lifetime of the Eu UC luminescence at 615 nm was also affected by the Yb doping concentration. The temperature sensitivity associated with the Er peaks at 520 and 542 nm was assessed as a function of temperature and the maximum of 0.0040 K occurred at 463 K.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

That portion of the electromagnetic spectrum usually sensed as heat. Infrared wavelengths are longer than those of visible light, extending into the microwave frequencies. They are used therapeutically as heat, and also to warm food in restaurants.

An optical source that emits photons in a coherent beam. Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation (LASER) is brought about using devices that transform light of varying frequencies into a single intense, nearly nondivergent beam of monochromatic radiation. Lasers operate in the infrared, visible, ultraviolet, or X-ray regions of the spectrum.

Tunable liquid lasers with organic compounds (i.e., dye) which have a strong absorption band, used as the active medium. During emission, the dye has to be optically excited by another light source (e.g., another laser or flash lamp). The range of the emission wavelength may be anywhere from the ultraviolet to the near infrared (i.e., from 180 to 1100nm). These lasers are operated in continuous wave and pulsed modes. (UMDNS, 2005)

That portion of the electromagnetic spectrum in the visible, ultraviolet, and infrared range.

A specialized field of physics and engineering involved in studying the behavior and properties of light and the technology of analyzing, generating, transmitting, and manipulating ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION in the visible, infrared, and ultraviolet range.
