Abstract

Red frequency-upconversion fluorescence emission is observed in europium (III) complex with encapsulating polybenzimidazole tripodal ligands, pumped with 930- and 1070-nm picosecond laser pulses. The luminescence of transition 5D0->7F2 (612 nm) is induced by two-photon absorption of hypersensitive transitions 7F0->5D2 (465 nm) and 7F1->5D1 (535 nm). Analysis results suggest that the two-photon excitation strength of these hypersensitive transitions is increased dramatically owing to the C3 symmetry of the coordination field.
