Harmonic nanoparticles (HNPs) attract growing interest owing to their unique nonlinear optical (NLO) properties such as loosened phase-matching conditions. Motivated by applications in the fields of multiphoton microscopy and holography, thorough investigations on harmonic generation have been sparked. Nevertheless, reports on three-wave mixing processes in HNPs are scarce, especially with respect to temporal evolution, even though this approach may pave the way towards ultrafast sub-ps time-resolved microscopy and fluorescence upconversion spectroscopy (FLUPS). Using two nondegenerate femtosecond pulses, transient nonlinear frequency mixing (FM) processes are studied comprehensively in nanoscaled lithium niobate powder plaques and thin particle layers using NLO diffuse reflectometry [C. Kijatkin et al., Photonics 2017, 4(1), 11]. A particular focus is given to the spectrotemporal analysis of multicolor emission exceeding the visible spectral range. Further assessment is performed in regard to FLUPS through upconversion of a picosecond pulse in order to test the viability of HNP powders as an alternative to crystalline media as a flexible material for different scalings and wavelengths.
