    Abstract: Well-dispersed, uniform Y2O3:Yb3+/Er3+ nanospheres have been successfully prepared at 160°C via a facile hydrothermal route without using any templates, followed by a subsequent calcination process. X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, and upconversion photoluminescence spectra were employed to characte... Show More
