UGA, UPR grant license for long-persistence glow materials, in any color
Date:8/17/2009

the guidance of the late William Yen, professor of physics, Franklin College of Arts and Sciences, University of Georgia, who was a pioneer in the field of long-persistence phosphorescence. Co-inventors are Weiya Jia, presently vice president of Performance Indicator, and Xiao-Jun Wang, associate professor of physics, Georgia Southern University. Yen and Jia pioneered the field of long-persistence phosphorescence and developed the first systematic approach to customize the color and duration of glow.

Yen held the Graham Perdue Chair in Physics at the University of Georgia from 1990 until his death in 2008. He was elected to the American Physical Society, the Optical Society of America, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the U.S. Electrochemical Society. Yen received numerous awards for his work, including the J. S. Guggenheim Fellowship and the A. von Humboldt Senior U.S. Scientist Award, as well as adjunct appointments at several universities. Yen was a principal editor of widely-used references on phosphors and phosphorescent technology, including Phosphor Handbook, Measurements of Phosphor Properties, Fundamentals of Phosphors and Practical Applications of Phosphors (all by CRC Press), as well as the Proceedings of Excon 98: Excitonic Processes.

Jia also is world-renowned in the creation of phosphorescent materials. Prior to joining the University of Puerto Rico, he held prominent positions at a variety of institutions, including the University of Georgia, the Chinese University of Science and Technology and the Chinese Institute of Physics.

Wang completed his graduate work at UGA under Yen. He is now an associate professor of physics at Georgia Southern University.

"Phosphorescent pigments are an important industrial segment. The U.S. color pigment industry was estimated to be around $2.5 billion in 2005 a year with projected growth around 6 percent until 2009. The phosphor segment may represent
