Nanostructured organosilicon luminophores (NOLs) consist of two types of covalently bonded via silicon atoms organic
luminophores with efficient Forster resonance energy transfer (FRET) between them. Such molecular structure allows
NOLs to combine the best properties of organic luminophores and inorganic quantum dots: high absorption cross-section
and photoluminescence quantum yield, large pseudo-Stokes shift, fast luminescence decay time, good solubility and
processability. Thin films of NOLs or their composites with optical plastics are transparent, which leads to efficient and
fast conversion of UV into visible light in different types of photodetectors and other optoelectronic devices. This paper
briefly reviews recent advances in the application of NOLs as wavelength shifters (WLS) in various types of elementary
particles photodetectors: liquid xenon detectors with PMT and silicon photomultipliers, plastic scintillators and
scintillating fibers, pure CsI scintillators.
