    Near-infrared-light-mediated optical tweezing of individual upconverting particles has enabled all-optical single-cell studies, such as intracellular thermal sensing and minimally invasive cytoplasm investigations. Furthermore, the intrinsic optical birefringence of upconverting particles renders them light-driven luminescent spinners with a yet unexplored potential in biomedicine. In this work, the use of upconverting spinners is showcased for the accurate and specific detection of single-cell and single-bacteria attachment events, through real-time monitoring of the spinners rotation velocity of the spinner. The physical mechanisms linking single-attachment to the angular deceleration of upconverting spinners are discussed in detail. Concomitantly, the upconversion emission generated by the spinner is harnessed for simultaneous thermal sensing and thermal control during the attachment event. Results here included demonstrate the potential of upconverting particles for the development of fast, high-sensitivity, and cost-effective systems for single-cell biodetection.
