A new era is dawning, the era of solid-state lighting in which the technical community has reason to believe that solid-state lighting will develop into a liberal technology that will benefit humanity at large. Over the past several years, phosphors have been considered as key and technologically important components as the prerequisites to the functionality and success of many lighting and display systems [1, 2]. At present, RE-based phosphors with efficiencies close to the theoretical maximum (100 %) are employed in different fluorescent tubes, X-ray imaging, and color televisions [3, 4]. Such applications depend on the luminescent properties of RE ions, e.g., sharp lines, high efficiency, and high lumen equivalent.
