Hexagonal sodium yttrium fluoride (NYF) crystals with rich morphologies have been grown by a rational route. Their up-conversion emission can be improved by post-treatment, but the as-grown crystal shapes can be preserved. This has been attributed to topotactic sodium ion insertion into the channels of the hexagonal sodium yttrium fluoride framework.
