This symposium centers on the science and technology of luminescence, in its broader sense, including photo-, thermo-, electro- and mechano-luminescence. The aim is to gather international experts as well as students to discuss the recent progresses in this highly inter- and multi-disciplinary area, with particular attention to the synthesis characterization, and applications of materials exhibiting advanced luminescence properties.

The scope of the conference will cover the following areas:

  • Photoluminescence
  • Cathodoluminescence
  • Ionoluminescence
  • Bioluminescence
  • Thermoluminescence
  • Electroluminescence
  • Mechano-, Sono- and Chemi-Luminescence
  • Theoretical aspects of luminescence
  • Nanophosphors: Physics and materials
  • Crystalline, amorphous and glass-ceramic materials
  • Polymeric and hybrid materials
  • Novel Synthesis
  • Materials Characterization
  • Quantum cutting and up-conversion
  • Combination of luminescent and plasmonic effects
  • Light emitting devices
  • Displays
  • Solar cells
