Solid-state lighting devices outshine the alternatives due to their unique properties such as high energy efficiency, brightness, longer lifetimes, excellent low temperature performance, reliability and added benets like maintenance savings and environmental friendliness. Developing novel phosphors for solid-state white lighting based on inorganic luminescent materials has become highly important.
Another important application area of luminescent materials is bioimaging with the NIR-emissive particles functioning as reporters of lifetime multiplexing, barcoding in cells and forensics, where long-lived NIR emitters are suitable to be used.
