abstract
Persistent luminescence is the phenomenon whereby a material keeps emitting light for seconds to hours after the excitation has stopped. This chapter describes the history of this class of materials and how the discovery of a new family of very efficient persistent phosphors has given a boost to the development of both new materials and applications. Synthesis conditions and analytical techniques specific to persistent luminescent compounds are described, together with ways to evaluate their performance in terms of human eye perception. A state of the art is presented about the materials— hosts and dopants—currently investigated for persistent luminescence, consistently referring to the original literature. Finally, in vivo medical imaging is shown to be a promising but challenging application of long-wavelength persistent luminescence and the relation between persistent luminescence and mechanoluminescence are described.
