Preparation and Luminescent Properties of Green-Emitting La(BO3,PO4): Ce, Tb
Green phosphor of La(BO3, PO4): Ce, Tb was synthesized by means of sol-gel method and conventional solid state method. The thermal formation process was characterized by thermogravimetric analysis (TG) and (DTA). The effects of synthesis method and conditions on the crystal and morphological structure were investigated by (XRD) and (SEM). The results revealed that La (BO3, PO4): Ce, Tb phosphors with monocline structure and high purity were successfully prepared by sol-gel method. Compared with solid state method, the products synthesized by sol-gel method presented well developed crystal structure, small particle size, narrow size distribution and high luminescent performances. The product synthesized at 1050°C for 2h had better emission intensity.
