Many upconversion luminescent materials emissive properties change as a function of temperature, pressure, or the presence of a chemical species. Such properties have long been exploited in the development of luminescence-based sensors. In this application note, we discuss how the use of luminescence thermometry changes the emissive properties of upconversion materials.
