New phosphors of Tm3+ doped Re2SiO4 (Re=Mg, Ba, Sr) were prepared by the solid-state reaction and their luminescent properties were investigated. X-ray powder diffraction analysis confirmed the formation of Re2SiO4: Tm3+ (Re=Mg, Ba, Sr). The excitation spectra indicated that this phosphor can be effectively excited by 161nm. It consists of peaked at 175nm and a broad excitation band from 184nm to 300nm, corresponded to the absorption of the host lattice and the O−Tm3+ charge transfer transitions. The emission peaks at about 357nm, 459nm, 485nm is separately corresponds to the 1D2 → 3H6, 1D2 → 3H4, 1G4 → 3H6 transitions of Tm3+. As the radius of alkali earth ion in Re site increases, the main emission peaks changed to 478nm from 459nm.
