General description

Magnesium oxide (MgO) is a metal oxide formed by processing magnesite. It can also be extracted from sea water. It is industrially produced by the calcination of magnesium carbonate or magnesium hydroxide.


MgO metal powder can be used for a variety of applications such as medical use, refractory materials, energy applications and in the preparation of magnesia nanoparticles.

Spectral conversion for solar cells is an emerging concept in the field of photovoltaics, and it has the potential to increase significantly the efficiency of solar cells. Lanthanide ions are ideal candidates for spectral conversion, due to their high luminescence efficiencies and rich energy level structure that allows for great flexibility in the upconversion and downconversion of photons in a wide spectral region (NIR-VIS-UV).

White solid-state light can be generated using three different approaches: By employing three diodes that emit red, green and blue light respectively, by using a near-UV LED that excites several phosphors that emit over the complete spectral range, or the third, most widely used alternative entailing down-conversion of a portion of blue LED light to longer wavelengths in such a manner that white light emerges.
