Lamp Phosphors

  • G. Blasse
  • B. C. Grabmaier


The previous chapters presented an outline of the phenomenon of luminescence in solids. They form the background for the following chapters which discuss luminescent materials for several applications, viz. lighting (Chapter 6), television (Chapter 7), X-ray phosphors and scintillators (Chapters 8 and 9), and other less-general applications (Chapter 10). These chapters will be subdivided as follows:
  • the principles of the application

  • the preparation of the materials

  • the luminescent materials which were or are in use or have a strong potential to become used; a discussion of their luminescence properties in terms of Chapters 2–5

  • problems in the field.
