This part of IEC 62607 describes the procedures to be followed and precautions to be
observed when performing reproducible measurements of the quantum efficiency of
luminescent nanomaterials. Luminescent nanomaterials covered by this method include nanoobjects such as quantum dots, nanophosphors, nanoparticles, nanofibers, nanocrystals,
nanoplates, and structures containing these materials. The nanomaterials may be dispersed
in either a liquid state (e.g., colloidal dispersion of quantum dots) or solid-state (e.g.,
nanofibers containing luminescent nanoparticles). This standard covers both relative
measurements of liquid state luminescent nanomaterials and absolute measurements of both
solid and liquid state nanomaterials.
