Efficient LEDs are not yet available in all colors required. Especially green is a concern. Phosphors for LEDs have to fulfill rather harsh conditions. , in fluorescent lamps), the luminescent materials must remain efficient up to high temperatures, should not show saturation (meaning a less than linear increase in output power with input power at high excitation densities), and must be radiation stable. 9 Factors Determining the Emission Color Many luminescent ions show emission at different wavelengths in different host lattices.

In many host lattices, therefore, at low Tb concentration, emission from both the 5D3 and 5D4 excited states is observed (unless the gap between these two states is bridged by phonon emission, for which relatively high-energy phonons are required, which is, for example, the case with InBO3:Tb). The resulting emission spectrum has emission from the near UV into the red part of 19 20 1 Emission and Excitation Mechanisms of Phosphors Fig. 15 Cross-relaxation between two Tb3þ ions. the optical spectrum.
