Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Luminescent materials are well known for a long time from traditional lighting and display applications, like cathode-ray (television) tubes, fluorescent lamps but also X-ray screens. Exploration of novel materials classes during the last years has enabled development of new applications, e.g. white LEDs, plasma display panels, bio-markers and solar cells. Recent progress and future prospects show that luminescent materials remain not only interesting from a scientific point of view but also relevant from an application point of view. For many years to come, scientific challenges as well as societal needs in this research field can be addressed by chemists, physicists and materials scientists. This special issue reviews the latest developments on these novel luminescent materials, their preparation, crystal chemistry, characterization and optical properties. The intention is to focus on the relationship between the luminescence properties on the one hand and the chemical composition and structure on the other. Contributions as review or original papers on basic research or applied technology of promising luminescent materials are welcomed.
