Luminescence in Rare Earth Activated AlPO4 Phosphor


Article Preview

Rare earth activated AlPO4 phosphors were synthesized by solid-state reactions and the completion of the synthesis was confirmed by X-ray diffraction (XRD) pattern. Under near-ultraviolet (nUV) light, the Eu3+ emission in AlPO4 consists of the transitions from 5D0 to 7FJ shows orange/red region and the AlPO4 :Dy3+ phosphor shows an efficient blue and yellow band emissions, which originates from the 4F9/26H15/2 and 4F9/26H13/2 transitions of Dy3+ ion. The excitation spectra of the phosphors are extending from 300 to 400 nm, which are characteristics of nUV excited LED. The effect of the Eu3+ and Dy3+ concentration on the luminescence properties of AlPO4 phosphors is also studied.
