Topic Close-up #3
Symposium D02: Nanoscale Luminescent Materials 6
Symposium focus: This symposium—the sixth in a bi-annual series—focuses on those characteristics of nanoscale materials that relate to their luminescence properties. Relevant topics include: effects of quantum confinement, the role of surface states, loss mechanisms, methods to improve luminescence efficiency, bulk vs. nanoparticle luminescence, and the role of phonons in nanomaterials.
Presentations at this meeting cover:
- basic physical properties of luminescent nano-materials including insulators, semiconductors, organics, and polymers
- nanophosphors for biophotonics and biomarkers
- nanoparticles for light emitting diodes and next generation lighting applications;
luminescent properties of fabricated nano-structures (nanowires, nanorods, nanodots, etc.)
- nanophosphors for traditional phosphor applications such as X-ray and scintillator phosphors, phosphors for VUV excitation, and persistent phosphors
Presentations should involve the physics, chemistry, and/or engineering of these materials.
An impressive list of more than 25 confirmed invited speakers includes renowned scientists from Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, The Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Sweden, and the US.
