Biological Templating: Bioinspired Design of SrAl2O4:Eu2+ Phosphor (Adv. Funct. Mater. 4/2009)
The morphology of native pine wood is replicated to generate a novel cellular phosphor material based on Eu-doped strontium aluminate. On page 599, the authors describe the infiltration and conversion of the original cell wall pattern using the biotemplating technique. The obtained materials show a strong green photoluminescence. Biological templates offer a novel approach for designing advanced micropatterned phosphor materials.
