The COST Action CM1403 “The European Upconversion Network: From the
Design of Photon-upoconverting nanomaterials to Biomedical Applications” was established
to support research networks, training of young scientists as well as scientific conferences in
countries of the European Union. More information is available on internet: www.cost.eu/COST_Actions/cmst/CM1403.
REALM group participates in the forthcoming UPCON18 associated conference with the contribution entitled
NaT(XO4)2:Yb:Er NANOPARTICLES WITH RECORD UC THERMAL SENSITIVITY
Incorporation of Na in the dodecahedral site of the garnet structure contributes to the broadening of the Yb optical bandwidth. A reduction of the mode-locked laser pulse duration can be expected.
Tetragonal double tungstates and double molybdates with NaLn(NO4)2 formula codoped wth Yb and Er have record values of thermal sensitivity based in the upconversion monitoring technique. See publications
