It has been an exciting and wonderful journey with Bentham Science Publishers @ Current Physical Chemistry. The editorial team are very much co-operative and at the same time never compromised on the quality aspect of my submission. The unknown reviewers were meticulous with their review. Their comments & suggestions saw to it that my manuscript was presented more authentically.
Over all, I would conclude by saying, “Thank you Bentham- I have had a humbling experience”.

The advent of nanotechnology has profound influence on the development and applications of new
types of lanthanide materials. Especially in the photonic industry, lanthanide based luminescent materials
play a very important role in several advanced technological applications. Some of their practical applications
include displays, lighting devices, lasers, fiber-optics, security inks and tags, optical sensors, drug
delivery, bioimaging, therapy, photocatalysis, and microscopy. Though there are several other luminescent
materials such as organic dyes and quantum dots utilized for these applications, lanthanide-based materials
deserve special attention due to their important features such as sharp absorption, emission, longer decay
time, photostability, less toxicity, etc. In this context, this special journal volume attempts to explore
some of the recent developments in the photonics and technological applications of rare earth doped materials.
This special issue contains six articles, divided into two volumes. The second volume Vol: 9, No. 3,
2019 contains three articles listed below. Optical properties of Erbium doped hydroxyapatite particle was
reported by Pooja Gitty et al. . Second article by Dr. Kumar is a comprehensive review article on the
spectroscopy of near infrared emitting Nd,Er and Tm with particular emphasis on their applications in telecommunication
and biomedical sensors . Third article by Solange et al.  report the upconversion
spectral properties of hydrothermally synthesized Ytterbium, Erbium and Thulium doped Y2O3.
Lanthanide doped optical materials deserve so much attention in today’s high technology photonics applications
ranging from security authentication to cancer therapy. Trivalent lanthanide ions are considered
to be the most stable and intrinsically, highly efficient light emitters in the vacuum ultraviolet to mid infrared
region. The completely filled outer shell nature of these ions provides a well protective shielding and
thereby the emission and absorption properties are not that much affected by the surrounding crystalline
field which makes them potential candidates for developing high gain optical amplifiers as well as in several
narrow band applications. These ions can be easily incorporated into several crystalline as well as
amorphous materials so as to enable their applications in several diverse fields such as lasers, fiber amplifiers,
solar cells, displays, catalysis, scintillators, and security markers as well as in biomedical areas such
as cancer therapy, bioimaging and other detection and identification purposes. In this context, this special
journal volume attempts to explore some of the recent developments a photonics and technological applications
of rare earth doped materials. This special issue contains six articles and they are divided into two
issues. The first issue (Vol: 9, No. 2, 2019) contains three articles listed below. Biomedical imaging and
therapeutic applications of various lanthanide doped apatites are discussed by authors, Dr. Girija , and
Dr. Meenal . Dr. Kistaiah  reports the spectroscopic studies and energy transfer properties of samarium
doped LLSZFB glasses.
