Relaxivity mechanism probing shows that longitudinal relaxivity enhancement of Gd3+-doped upconversion nanoparticles (UCNPs) originates from inner- and outer-sphere mechanisms for ligand-free probes, and mainly from an outer-sphere mechanism for silica-shielded probes. The origin of transverse relaxivity is inferred to be mainly from an outer-sphere mechanism, regardless of surface-modification but with the transverse relaxivity (r2) values highly related to the surface-state.
