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!

Friday, November 17, 2017

Our colleague Jiaren has been awarded the Journal of Materials Chemistry B poster prize at SHIFT2017 in Tenerife. His work on LaAlO3:Mn4+ as near-infrared emitting persistent phosphor for medical imaging will be published soon. Congratulations!

PhD obtained by Jonas Joos
Friday, May 5, 2017

Today our colleague Jonas Joos obtained his PhD. His excellent work on LED phosphor design has led to no less than 12 A1 publications over the last 4 years. We hope he will continue this trend during his time with LumiLab as a postdoc! Congratulations, Jonas!

Warmathon 2016
Friday, December 23, 2016

This year LumiLab again gladly participated in the charity event of Studio Brussel, supporting over 1000 good causes. Even though the wind was cold and Christmas holidays were lurking, together we ran 89,1 km. This would not have been possible without the loud support of Heleen. Thanks to all participating (ex-)colleagues!
