Luminescence Spectroscopy of Minerals and Materials presents an overview of the general concepts in luminescence spectroscopy as well as experimental methods and their interpretation. Special emphasis is laid on the fluorescence lifetime and the determination of time-resolved spectra. This method enables the exposure of new luminescence in minerals previously hidden by more intensive centers. Specialists in the fields of solid state physics, chemistry and spectroscopy will find a wealth of new information in this unique book.

From the reviews of the first edition:
"This is a well-presented volume concerning the luminescence of a wide variety of minerals and synthetic mineral analogues. ... The particular strength of the book is its review of photoluminescence in minerals ... . this is an important volume that students of luminescence in mineralogy will value. It will be also be of interest to other solid state scientists such as chemists and physicists. ... It is a book I have recommended for my University library, and ... it is something I will need on my own shelf." (Adrian Finch, Geological Magazine, Vol. 143, 2006)
