Persistent luminescence, commonly called afterglow, is long-lasting visible emission over several hours after ultraviolet excitation. It has many applications; ranging from glow-in-the-dark signage to in-vivo imaging for disease diagnosis and treatment. In this application note, the persistent luminescence kinetics of a doped strontium aluminate phosphor are characterised using the FLS1000 Photoluminescence spectrometer

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.
