This article highlights some of the recent developments in the use of responsive cyclen based lanthanide luminescent devices, focusing on Eu(III), Tb(III), Nd(III) and Yb(III) complexes, where the photophysical properties, such as the excited state lifetimes, quantum yield/intensity and emission polarisation are modulated by the local chemical environment, e.g. ions and molecules, or through self-assembly of either f-f or mixed f-d cyclen complexes.
