The luminescence lifetime of the green upconversion emission Er3? ions in ZrO2 nanocrystals was found to be sensitive to the particle size and crystalline phase, as well as to the residual surface contaminants. Erbium doped (0.2 mol% Er2O3) ZrO2 nanocrystals ranging from 54 to 120 nm in size were prepared by a sol–gel process with the presence of nonionic PLURONIC P127 surfactant, and the upconversion emission was characterized. PLURONIC P127 at a molar ratio of 0.0082 promoted both an enhancement in the green upconversion emission as well as a strong reduction of surface contaminants such as CO, CH2, and OH. A fluorescence decay analysis via a simple microscopic rate equation model suggests that crystallite size and nonradiative relaxation mechanisms to different surface contaminants have to be taken into account to explain the observed green luminescence quenching. XRD, FTIR and luminescence lifetime measurements allow the quantification of the nonradiative processes that lead to the green luminescence quenching
