    A benchmark publication, the first edition of the Phosphor Handbook, published in 1998, set the standard for references in the field. The second edition, updated and published in 2007, began exploring new and emerging fields. However, in the last 14 years, since the second edition was published, many notable advances and broader phosphor applications have occurred. Completely revised, updated, and expanded into three separate volumes, this third edition of the Handbook covers the most recent developments in phosphor research, characterization, and applications.

    This volume on ‘Experimental Methods for Phosphor Evaluation and Characterization’ addresses the theoretical and experimental methods for phosphor evaluation and characterization. The chapters in the book cover:

      • First principle and DFT analysis of optical, structural, and chemical properties of phosphors
      • Phosphor design and tuning through structure and solid solution
      • Design for IR, NIR, and narrowband emission and thermally stable phosphors and nanophosphors
      • Detailed illustration for measurement of the absolute photoluminescence quantum yield of phosphors
      • Phosphor analysis through photoionization, high pressure, and synchrotron radiation studies
