Nonradiative Processes in Luminescent Materials: A Materials Scientists View

  • G. Blasse
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 249)

Abstract

Nonradiative processes in luminescent materials are of large importance for materials properties. Sometimes they are required to be fast, sometimes to be slow. In this contribution we will review an approach to nonradiative processes which is tractable for application to a wide range of materials, i.e. the materials scientist view. Physical models like the configurational coordinate diagram and the Förster-Dexter energy transfer approach will be used in a simplified form. Our approach will be illustrated by examples. The main stress will be on nonradiative transitions between two energy levels within one and the same luminescent species, and on energy transfer and especially energy migration. The compositions to be dealt with are mainly nonmolecular insulating compounds, but excursions to molecular species will be included.
