In recent years, Upconversion (UC) materials have attracted much attention because of them fantastic capability of converting the low-energy photons into high-energy photons. Among these materials, the Lanthanide-doped inorganic phosphors have shown remarkable potential for Upconvertion visible to UV (from A to C).

For example in Health area, it could be expected that the Visible-to-UV UC materials could open a new window for promoting visible-light-driven photo-antibiosis and photo-sterilization to prevent disease transfer in hospitals, the food industry.

 On the other hand, new researches also have indicated the huge potentials of these compounds in photo-catalysis fields.  For example, Ti based photocatalysts (like TiO2) are very active catalysts, but mainly respond to UV irradiation, so they could not make full use of the whole solar spectrum.

In  solar energy fields, these materials show absorbing abilities. For instance, current research of visible-light-driven water splitting is highly limited due to absence of efficient and chemically stable photo-catalysts. The application of visible-to-UV UC material can effectively sensitize UV-responsive photocatalysts to promote visible-light driven water splitting.

Our work will be focued on visible-to-UVA UC by Lanthanide-dopedions and our challenges in this research field is preparing such materials both from theoretical to commercial perspective.
