    The focus of the book is to explore metal oxides exhibiting a high optical transmittance as applicable in the field of light-emitting diodes (LEDs), photo-catalysts, and so forth. It provides exposure to structural and chemical parameters of optically active metal oxides as a phosphor, innovative and currently demanded synthesis methods, and their proper characterization. It further covers applications such as optical thermometry, scintillation, anti-counterfeit, solid-state lighting and spectral modifier for solar cells, VUV application, and long persistent light emission phenomenon.

    Features:

    • Reviews selection of structurally and functionally active materials for effective synthesis of metal oxides
    • Exclusively covers large number of areas of applications of the luminescent metal oxides
    • Cover various aspects of metal oxide research including synthesis and applications
    • Includes chapters on synthesis-related predictions using machine learning
    • Discusses radiation dosimetry and bio-imaging aspects

    This book is aimed at researchers and graduate students in materials science and phosphor technology.
