Our friend and cooperation partner Prof. Dr. Łukasz Marciniak (Polish Academy of Sciences, Wrocław) was hard-working again and brought the next transition metal ion into the test stage for luminescence thermometry. Together with his group, we have investigated the luminescence of this ion and its performance as a luminescent thermometer for temperatures below room temperature somewhat closer. The work has been published in the renowned Journal of Materials Chemistry C:
