Abstract
The field of infrared upconversion for astronomy is reviewed. The basic theory of upconversion is presented, along with a brief historical summary of upconversion techniques. Several investigators have employed upconverters in astronomical studies, but have met with only modest success. Upconversion will become a useful detection method for astronomy only if substantial but perhaps forseeable improvements can be realized.
