Project description

The project aims at developing a general model to explain the increase of luminescent lifetime of certain hostmatrix- codopant combinations. Synthesis of a selected group of persistent materials and stydy of their structural and optical properties as a function of temperature. The model will then be tested by comparing with other materials.
