The idea which should be taken to the proof of concept is the application of nano energy-conversion phosphors in ionic liquids. The energy efficiency and performance of photonic devices such as CFLs (compact fluorescent lamps), LEDs (light emitting diodes) and SCs (solar cells) will be improved by more efficient use of light. For this, special nano energy-conversion phosphors (ecPs) will be coated on the respective device by a new technique relying . As no new development of the devices themselves is required, the invention has a near-market potential. The new technology will allow for a better device performance, higher energy efficiency, safer and greener production, diminish the impacts on health and environment during manufacturing as well as end-of-life. The consumption of rare materials where world-market shortage is observed will be reduced and the economic position of European companies improved.
