    Abstract: We show numerically how lanthanide-doped upconverter nanocrystals inserted at optimal positions in adjustable and smooth 2D plasmonic arrays may change and potentially control the whole UV-visible-NIR reflectance spectra displayed by these structures. The analysis and interplay between a custom-built simple 5-levels 2-electrons quantum model and th... Show More
