A reference for luminescence

  1. Apr 18, 2013 #1
    I've been looking for a good reference for luminescence spectroscopy but I haven't found anything. Could anyone please help me?

    Had a quick look and found this.

    Laser excited atomic fluorescence spectrometry — a review
    Spectrochimica Acta Part B: Atomic Spectroscopy
    Volume 56, Issue 9, 30 September 2001, Pages 1565–1592
    http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/S0584-8547(01)00265-8 [Broken]

    Look useful?

    Thank you very much for that. It is very helpful but this article is about Laser excited atomic fluorescence spectrometry while I am looking for a useful reference for Photoluminescence excitation spectroscopy (PLE) and time resolved Photoluminescence spectroscopy and that how can we analyse the data obtained by these methods.

    To broad a topic. Let me split it into two.

    1) Luminescence spectroscopy of organic molecules.
    I use a reference:
    "Principles of Fluorescence Spectroscopy" 3rd edition by Joseph R. Lakowicz (Springer, 2006).

    2) For solid state physics, especially semiconductors.
    I use for a reference:
    "Optical Processes in Semiconductors" by Jacques I. Pankove (Dover, 1971).

    I know about the enormous cost differential. Lakowicz is very expensive but very comprehensive. Pankove is inexpensive but a bit narrow. However, that is what I have been using.
