Modern Luminescence From Fundamental Concepts to Materials and Applications, Luminescence in Biomedicine, Volume Three is a multi-volume work that reviews the fundamental principles, properties and applications of luminescent materials. Topics addressed include key concepts of luminescence, with a focus on important characterization techniques to understand a wide category of luminescent materials, the most relevant luminescent materials, including transition metals, rare-earth materials, actinide-based materials, and organic materials, emerging applications of luminescent materials in biomedicine, solid state devices, and the development of hybrid materials. Finally, the book reviews the latest advances in the application of luminescence and luminescent materials in the field of biomedicine. It includes a review of the use of luminescent nanoparticles and nanomaterials used in diagnosis, detection and therapy. Future applications are also discussed, including nanothermometry, nanotechnology in immunotherapy and gene delivery and bio-based luminescent sensing and detection.
