Review: Non-conventional phosphor host materials such as cryptands (see Figure) or zeolites now offer potential alternatives to the traditional inorganic solid-state materials which find applications in e.g. fluorescent lamps, T.V. sets, or X-ray detectors. Recent efforts to further optimize conventional materials are reviewed and a forward look is taken at the new-generation materials which could further extend the physical limits of luminescence.
