Low-power-threshold cw laser-induced incandescence (CWLII) has been observed in La(2)O(3):Er(3+)-Yb(3+) phosphor on excitation by a 976 nm IR laser. It is suggested that incandescence originates from the extensive heating induced by the nonradiative processes taking place following the laser excitation.
