With a facile one-pot strategy, up-conversion and down-conversion luminescent LaF3 and NaLaF4 nanorods are successfully prepared. Owing to their high up-conversion and down-conversion luminescence, ease of processing, and simple fabrication, these luminescent inorganic nanocrystals may find great potential applications in polymer-based devices.
