Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

While luminescent materials have been known and studied for many decades, new materials, new synthesis methods and novel applications have recently initiated a boost in the research efforts into this class of materials. For example, both organic and inorganic LEDs are rapidly developing as light sources for displays and general lighting, quantum dots are promoted as highly efficient and tunable emitters, storage phosphors are rapidly replacing photographic plates in medical imaging and advanced persistent luminescent materials can be used for emergency and decorative lighting without any external power source than ambient light. In addition, efforts are being made to improve the efficiency of solar cells using fluorescent edge emitting plates, upconversion and quantum cutting phosphors. This special issue aims at presenting a selection of state of the art research topics in the synthesis, analysis, modeling and application of luminescent materials. Both review papers and contributions on original research will be welcomed in the issue.
