Call for Papers: Visible and Infrared Phosphor Research and Applications

PhosphorsSubmit your manuscripts for the ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology (JSS) Focus Issue on Visible and Infrared Phosphor Research and Applications by July 29, 2017.

Rapid changes are taking place in the area of luminescent materials research from basic understanding to novel applications. This is due to the recent progresses in the area of phosphors for LED applications and the need for novel luminescent materials for applications in medical research as biosensors, solar cells, infrared sensors, and display technologies. These developments have led to new questions and new techniques related to basic research in the field of luminescence.

The main goal of this focus issue of the JSS is to provide a comprehensive picture of the current trends in research of phosphor emitting in the visible and IR regions.

Review and contributed papers are welcome in the following topics:

  • White luminescence from nano particles
  • Plasmonics
  • Phosphor in glass
  • Nitride phosphors
  • Photonics
  • Thermodynamics limit of light extraction
  • CRT + electroluminescence
  • Solar cells
  • OLED / organic dyes
  • Nanophosphors / medical application
  • Synthesis methods for nitride

All papers published in this focus issue will be OPEN ACCESS at NO COST to the authors! *
