Special Issue "Optical Materials for White Light Emitting Diodes (WLEDs)"
A special issue of Materials (ISSN 1996-1944).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2019.
Vilnius University, Faculty of Chemistry and Geosciences, Institute of Chemistry, Naugarduko 24, LT-03225 Vilnius, Lithuania
Interests: upconverting nanoparticles, luminescence spectroscopy, functional materials, high pressure synthesis, materials science
The efficiency of blue and near-UV LED chips are ever increasing and it is only a matter of time until solid state light sources replace the conventional incandescent, halogen and even fluorescent light bulbs. Thus the demand for high-efficiency phosphors that can be excited in the blue or near-UV spectral region is very high. The topics of this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Novel synthesis techniques
- Efficiency improvement
- Methods of quantum efficiency measurements
- Particle shape optimization
- Thermal quenching improvement
- Phosphor ceramics
- Garnet phosphors
- Silicate phosphors
- Oxide-based phosphors
- Oxynitrides and nitrides
- Phosphors for near-UV LEDs
- Single-phase, white-light-emitting phosphors
- Blue/cyan-emitting phosphors
- Green/yellow-emitting phosphors
- Orange/red-emitting phosphors
We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to submit your manuscripts to the Special Issue “Optical Materials for White-Light-Emitting Diodes (WLEDs)” of Materials in the form of full research article, short communication or a review.

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 1800 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.
