Quantum cutting down-conversion has been the subject of intense research activity due to its wide application in optoelectronic devices. However, the energy transfer mechanism behind this down-conversion process is not fully understood. In this work, monodispersed Eu(3+) doped NaYbF4 nanotubes were synthesized by a hydrothermal route. Simultaneous phase transition from cubic to hexagonal and size modification are controlled by changing the Eu(3+) doping concentration. Excited by 393 nm… CONTINUE READING
