Photoluminescence (PL) is a light matter quantum interaction associated with the chemical potential of light formulated by the Generalized Planck's law. Without knowing the inherent temperature dependence of chemical potential, the Generalized Planck's law is insufficient in order to characterize PL vs. T. Recent experiments showed that PL at a critical temperature abruptly shifts from a conserved rate, accompanied by a blue-shift, to thermal emission. Here, we theoretically study temperature…

Conservation of photon rate in endothermic photoluminescence and its transition to thermal emission
Photoluminescence (PL) is a fundamental light–matter interaction that conventionally involves the absorption of an energetic photon, thermalization, and the emission of a redshifted photon.
Some Thermodynamics of Photochemical Systems
A limit on the thermodynamic potential difference between the ground and excited states of any photochemical system is established by evaluating the potential difference at which the rate of photon
Bose–Einstein condensation of photons in an erbium–ytterbium co-doped fiber cavity
The authors demonstrate BEC of photons in a standard 1D erbium–ytterbium co-doped fiber cavity at, below and above room temperature, finding linear dependence of the condensation on power for various temperatures and of the critical power on temperature.
Thermalization of one-dimensional photon gas and thermal lasers in erbium-doped fibers.
Thermalization and Bose-Einstein distribution of photons in standard erbium-doped fibers (edf) in a broad spectral range up to ~200nm at the 1550nm wavelength regime is demonstrated and the experimental results are supported by a theoretical analysis based on the rate equations.
Laser cooling of solids to cryogenic temperatures
Laser radiation has been used to cool matter ranging from dilute gases to micromechanical oscillators. In Doppler cooling of gases, the translational energy of atoms is lowered through interaction
The chemical potential of radiation
In a thermodynamic treatment electromagnetic radiation of any kind is described. The difference between thermal and non-thermal radiation is accounted for by introducing the chemical potential of
