Upon excitation at 796 nm, Nd3+- doped BaCl2 single crystals show several upconverted fluorescence bands in the visible spectral range, with the most intense bands at 530, 590 and 660 nm, in addition to the typical fluorescence bands in the infrared spectral range. The power dependence of the infrared fluorescence and the two-photon upconversion fluorescence intensities as well as the corresponding radiative lifetimes have been investigated. No 'saturation' of the fluorescence intensities was observed upon increasing the excitation power.
