      Abstract: Lanthanide luminescence is at the   heart of applications as diverse as lighting, telecommunications,   lasers, security marking, barcoding, luminescent molecular   thermometers, immunoassays, or optical medical imaging. The   subject is fascinating and has always accompanied the development   of lanthanide science and technology, from the early discovery of   the 4f elements to present high-technology applications. The   large added value of luminescent phosphors, probes, and materials   explains the enthusiasm research groups are coming up with in   looking for new and better systems, in addition to simple   fascination for light emission.
