From basic principles of luminescence to innovative technical applications, Phosphor Handbook will serve as the definitive resource on phosphors. Considering all the major changes in the field of phosphors, the editors have produced the most current and comprehensive reference available today.
Contributed by noted worldwide scientists and engineers, the handbook serves a ready audience among researchers in the field of luminescence.
This book completely describes:
  • powder phosphors, including information on solid state laser materials and organic EL
  • properties and technical applications of phosphors, including the principal classes of phosphors, procedures to synthesize and manufacture these phosphors, manner of deployment, and materials that emit light under various kinds of excitation
  • current developments of phosphor materials required in advanced display technologies, such as UV Plasma Display and Field Emission Display (FED)
  • experimental techniques characterizing materials in their initial and final forms
    Other provisos include:
  • tutorials of fundamental physical and chemical properties of phosphor materials
  • descriptions of optical properties of phosphor materials
  • profiles on methods of synthesis and manufacture of all practical phosphors
  • analysis of experimental procedures for the optical characterization of raw phosphors and the creation of display devices or lamps
  • specification of physical and optical requirements for all applications of phosphors in lighting and display technologies
    Japanese industry has and will continue to play a key role in developing these applications, and many contributors to this volume acted as principals in the progress discussed.
    Display technologies will increase in importance, and no cohesive or comprehensive treatise exists - from basic to applied - on the nature, properties, synthesis, characterization, manufacture, and handling of phosphor materials in lighting and display technologies and applications. This exceptional handbook rectifies this deficiency, serving as the defining resource for all those engaged in research or in the application of phosphor materials - regardless of whether they are newcomers or veterans in this endeavor.
