Metal Oxide Nanostructured Phosphors: Properties and Applications provides a comprehensive review of recent progress in nanophosphors, followed by an exploration of the future scope.
Photon conversion nanomaterials (nanophosphors) have found applications in solar cells, imaging technology, biosensors, light-activated therapy, photocatalysis, display applications and dosimetry. Taking full advantage of the benefits of nanophosphors requires a thorough understanding of the available materials and their structure, properties, and synthesis.
The book introduces metal-oxide-based nanostructured phosphors, covering energy transfer mechanisms, categories and chemical composition. The most widely used synthesis pathways and the formation mechanism of crystallization for nanocompounds are summarised, followed by a discussion of innovative techniques and more environmentally friendly methods. Each chapter discusses both materials synthesis and applications based on the types of nanostructures and their characteristics, providing a thorough account of the advantages and disadvantages of each material and process.
This book is an excellent resource both for professional and academic researchers who want to dive into this area of luminescent materials. It is ideal for scientists and engineers working on optical devices, lighting, display and imaging technologies, energy materials, and for all those engaged in research in photonics, nanoscience, luminescence and optical materials.
- Introduces luminescent metal oxide materials, their chemical composition, properties and energy transfer mechanisms
- Discusses the advantages and disadvantages of conventional and novel metal oxide phosphors, providing essential information for anyone engaged in materials selection for luminescent devices
- Offers practical information on the synthesis of luminescent nanosuperstructures, including innovative and green techniques, in order to support research into and commercial exploitation of nanophosphors
Scientists and engineers working on optical devices, lighting, display and imaging technologies, energy materials, and for all those engaged in research in photonics, nanoscience, luminescence and optical materials
