The LumiLab research group is a part of the department of Solid State Sciences at Ghent University. We study the various aspects of luminescence, from theoretical understanding over phosphor synthesis to applications such as LED phosphors and photocatalysis.

On our website, you can read the latest news and info, get to know our group members, find out about the facilities available in our research groups, view a list of our most important publications, and find out how and where to contact us.

We wish you a pleasant stay on our site, and hope to meet you soon in our laboratory!
