The assigned anomalous upconversion emission intensity of theD→Ftransition of Euin the double perovskite SrCa(WMo)Oco-doped with Ybis shown to be due to a transition metal impurity present in the MoOstarting material. Relevant literature shows that the highest energyD→Ftransition is at a longer wavelength than 685 nm in molybdates. Cases of anomalous intensity of this transition are reviewed. Our 360 nm excited emission spectra of SrCa-EuYbLiMoOshow a very weakD→Ftransition, but on co-doping with Mn a structured band between 640 and 710 nm is observed due to Mn.
