Special issue on “Advanced Materials for Solid State Lighting”

The modern society relies heavily on mankind’s ability to produce light. The invention of the blue LED has started the new era of solid state lighting. Solid state lighting research includes breakthrough research for materials leading to disruptive innovations in solid state lighting and may address all areas of solid state lighting technologies. The recent trend in solid state lighting is to produce efficient white light sources. There are several ways to produce white light. Among the phosphors converted white light-emitting diodes (w-LEDs) are now recognized as the next-generation lighting devices and considered as a superior lighting technology. Currently, stable and highly luminescent white light-emitting phosphors are important to display and lighting technologies. These phosphors generally based on some rare earth (RE) doped host matrices. Therefore, to find the suitable host materials and rare earth dopants (rather known as phosphors) is now in research hotspot. Phosphors can be of two types, down converted and up converted phosphors. Both types of phosphors are necessary for the lighting industry. Therefore, the present research work is mainly based on the searching of suitable phosphors for lighting, security and solar cell applications and fabrication of LEDs and solar cell devices.

The goal of this special issue is to highlight the most recent advances in Luminescent Materials for Solid State Technologies. Original research articles and review papers are solicited on all aspects related to the next generation of Luminescent Materials from the scientific, technological, or industrial viewpoints.

Contributions of all types of articles are free of charge and are not levied on authors.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Synthesis and characterization of novel nano phosphors
