Among various developed UC luminescence materials, rare earth doped yttrium silicates (YSO) exhibit high chemical durability and thermal stability which are suitable for many applications such as lighting, lasers, optical sensors and biological applications. The reduction to nano size of such materials aims to investigate the issue of how the optical properties affected, and thus to further extend the use of these materials in photonic industry. The studies about the effect of nanoscale to the lattice-electron interaction is not yet enough to understand the mechanisms. For this reason, the influence of the various synthesis techniques to the size and the effect of the size of those nano-materials on the optical and thermal properties are basic research areas for various photonic device design and their developments.
