Graphical Abstract: Light converter: The emission of visible light (Vis) upon excitation in the nearinfrared (NIR) has been observed for the first time in a transparent solution. Excitation at 975 nm (marked red in the picture) of optically clear colloidal solutions of LuPO4:Yb3+, Tm3+, and YbPO4:Er3+ nanocrystals in chloroform leads to visible upconversion luminescence in the blue, green, or red spectral regions.
