Hosts for Solid-State Luminescent Systems

Part of the Electronic Materials: Science and Technology book series (EMST, volume 2)


Solid-state luminescent sources are based on luminescent dopants located in wide-bandgap non-luminescent hosts. Often, the particular host chosen can be as important as the dopant used. In this chapter, we briefly review the properties of the hosts which will influence the luminescent properties of our source.
