ResourcesDependence of Phosphors

Application Note: Temperature Dependence of Phosphors via Photo-and Thermo-Luminescence

Inorganic phosphors are widely used in lighting and display technologies and their emission properties are commonly characterised using photoluminescence spectroscopy. Phosphors generally operate at elevated temperatures and it is therefore important to understand how the emission properties change with temperature. In this application note, the temperature dependence of BAM:Eu phosphor is studied using the FLS980 Photoluminescence Spectrometer.
