Abstract: THERE HAS BEEN A SURGE OF INTEREST IN THE FIELD OF UPCONVERSION NANOPARTICLE RESEARCH DUE TO THEIR INTRINSIC OPTICAL PROPERTIES, INCLUDING LARGE ANTI-STOKES SHIFTS AND SHARP EMISSION BANDWIDTHS. FOR THE PAST DECADE, CONSIDERABLE EFFORTS HAVE BEEN PLACED ON FUNDAMENTAL UNDERSTANDING OF PHOTON UPCONVERSION WITHIN NANOCRYSTALS TO ACHIEVE THEIR OPTICAL TUNING. IN THIS STUDY, THE RESEARCH FOCUS IS FIRST DEVOTED TO DISCLOSING THE HIERARCHICAL CONTROL IN UPCONVERSION NANOSTRUCTURES AND REVEALING THE ADVANTAGE OF HIERARCHICAL MORPHOLOGY TOWARDS THEIR SURFACE FUNCTIONALIZATION AND THUS BROAD THEIR APPLICATIONS; THE SECOND PART OF THIS STUDY DEMONSTRATES A STRATEGY FOR PROGRAMMABLE POLYMERIZATION OF UPCONVERSION NANOPARTICLES, LEADING TO NANOPARTICLE HOMOPOLYMERS, COPOLYMERS AND BLOCK COPOLYMERS WITH DIFFERENT DEGREE OF COMPLEXICITY. FINALLY, A THERMOMETRY APPLICATION OF UPCONVERSION NANOPARTICLES BY USING THEIR NIR EMISSIONS IS DEMONSTRATED, AND THE SELF-REFERENCING TECHNIQUE IMPART THESE NANOP
