The report summarizes peculiarities of synthesis and luminescence properties of porous silicon, porous anodic alumina and artificial opals with the inclusions of sol-gel derived oxides (xerogels), doped with Er, Tb, and Eu. Origin of strong luminescence of lanthanides from xerogels in mesoporous matrices is discussed.
