  Abstract  
  Upconversion nanocomposite materials have received increasing interest in both fundamental researches and practical applications. Lanthanide-doped nanoparticles, integrated in a variety of hierarchical nanocomposite materials, exhibit unique nonlinear optical property, which convert low energy photons into higher energy radiation. Upconversion nanocomposite materials may be utilized in various fields, such plasmon enhanced fluorescence, security technique and anti-counterfeiting materials, biomedical imaging, and photovoltaic devices. This review summarizes some recent progresses regarding the upconversion nanocomposites and their applications, and provides opinions on the challenges in this subject for future applications.
