My project aims to develop a spectral reference library for mineral upconversion fluorescence. Upconversion fluorescence is a phenomena which is widely studied in the biological/medical/photovoltaic fields, but has not been investigated in minerals. It has the potential to provide robust, mineral-specific identification on timescales that matter for operations at scale.
