We report about preliminary results of using upconversion luminophores (UCLs) for tissue imaging. We manufactured luminophores particles of different sizes and tissue-mimicking phantoms for this study. Results of our experiments on imaging correspond well with our Monte Carlo simulations of luminescence detection from an imbedded vessel filled with UCLs.
