Ultraviolet light phosphors used in conjunction with discharge lamps can open up entirely new fields of applications for UV technology. Long-established chemical processes can be made much more effective, environmentally sustainable, and resource-efficient.
The substantial energy brought by exposure to UV light can initiate many photochemical reactions. Combined with discharge lamps, the phosphors made by Tailorlux can power these reactions to enable innovative application in industry and medical science.

Better light and greater safety with VIS phosphors
Tailorlux produces custom solutions for the innovative application of photonic effect pigments in the spectral range that is visible to the human eye (400 to 700 nm: VIS). In residential or workplace settings, inorganic luminescent pigments can be used as an efficient and colour-accurate choice for fluorescent, energy-efficient, and LED lamps.
Afterglow pigments can be produced to emit light energy over short or long periods of time, e.g. for guiding people to safety with afterglow emergency exit signs. VIS phosphors are extremely versatile and can be designed to emit light in broad wavebands and / or in a specific wavelength fingerprint. The pigments can be optimized to achieve the perfect desired light with exceptional efficiency and yield.
Custom Infrared Phosphors
Infrared (IR) phosphors are luminophores that respond to exposure to an energy source by emitting infrared light with wavelengths in the 700 to 1500 nm range. The custom IR phosphors made by Tailorlux can be used to produce IR emitters with a specific, narrow spectrum that is unaffected by the surrounding temperature. These light sources – produced e.g. as LEDs – offer much greater efficiency than traditional IR sources, such as filament or halogen lamps with their broad, unspecific spectrum and strong susceptibility to changes in the temperature.
The properties of the luminophores developed by Tailorlux make them an ideal choice for
Medical diagnostics and therapy
Up-Converters – Infrared made visible
Up-converters or anti-Stokes pigments are materials that emit light in the visible spectrum (VIS) whenever they are stimulated with infrared light. This is made possible by laser light sources that focus near-infrared (NIR) light with enough energy to initiate the conversion from low-energy NIR to visible light.
A classic use case for up-converters is the invisible marking of documents or any other type of product. The markings can be seen with the naked eye when they are exposed to a special light source.
Only few up-converter systems have the minimum efficiency to qualify them for commercial use, and the range of suitable materials is relatively limited. This makes up-converters only partially suited as an anti-counterfeiting solution.
Tailorlux produces high efficiency up-converters with intensive blue, green, or red fluorescence and added forgery-proof properties beyond their use as visible markers. These forensically valid protections offer optimized value for money for all applications that need product markings to be visually verifiable and forensically safe.
Dentallux – Luminescent pigments for naturally whiter teeth
The materials used in Dentallux luminescent pigments are completely natural in origin. Alongside many other parameters, the fluorescent properties are critical for the overall aesthetic appeal of dental prosthetics.
Brightness, intensity, and tonality are the criteria that define the unique impression we have of any colour. Dentallux luminophores are the perfect building block for the best possible natural result.
With the natural versatility of the inorganic substances, the material can be modelled and adjusted specifically to the client’s needs. This goes for the particle sizes and luminescence of the material.
Dentallux dental luminophores have excellent processing properties. They are produced as a toxicologically harmless and temperature resistant (to 1000° centigrade) white powder.
