Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Eu3+ doped phosphors have been known and studied for many years. Nonetheless, there are still new fields in which narrow red emission of europium can be used (pc-WLEDs, modern LCD screens, luminescence thermometers, etc.). On the other hand, Eu3+ ions are a great optical probe for subtle structural changes in materials. This feature is often used in the design and study of new luminescence materials.

Therefore, I would like to invite you to publish your results in this Special Issue of the Materials journal devoted to ‘Structural and Optical Studies of Eu3+ Doped Materials’. I believe that this issue will be a guide and review of novel materials, which use the unique and versatile properties of Eu3+ ions.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
