Abstract

We observed multiphoton upconversion (UC) emissions from the high-energy states ( I 11 / 2 2 , D 7 / 2 4 , G 9 / 2 4 , D 5 / 2 2 , K 13 / 2 2 , and P 3 / 2 2 ) of Er 3 + ions in Yb 3 + - Er 3 + codoped β - Na YF 4 microcrystals under 1560 nm excitation. Analysis indicated that the highest-order emissions came from 11-photon UC processes. In the codoped system, the energy transfer (ET) from Er 3 + ( I 11 / 2 4 ) to Yb 3 + ( F 5 / 2 2 ) and subsequently the back ET from Yb 3 + to Er 3 + played important roles in populating these high-energy states of Yb 3 + and Er 3 + . Several different UC processes work simultaneously to populate excited Er 3 + in this codoped sample.
