Upconversion Luminescence (UCL) of YVO4:Yb3+, Er3+ inverse opal photonic crystals (IOPCs) was investigated in contrast to the references under the excitation of a 980-nm laser diode. Besides the traditional modification on UCL and dynamics, it is significant to observe that in the IOPCs the temperature quenching and local thermal effect was greatly suppressed.
