Abstract

A first-order quantum cutting luminescence of Ho 3 + / Yb 3 + couples, which are incorporated in the YF 3 nanocrystals embedded in transparent glass ceramic, is reported for the first time, to our knowledge. When Ho 3 + is excited with one blue photon, it was experimentally demonstrated that the resonant energy transfer from Ho 3 + to Yb 3 + occurs, leading to the near-infrared quantum cutting with one Ho 3 + photon emitting at 1180 nm and one Yb 3 + photon at 980 nm . The theoretical quantum efficiency is evaluated to be 159%.
