Luminescence Properties of Spherical Phosphors SrSiO3:Eu3+
Spherical SiO2 particles have been successfully coated with SrSiO3:Eu3+ phosphor layers through a sol-gel process. The resulted core-shell phosphors were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), photoluminescence spectra as well as kinetic decays. The XRD results demonstrate that the SrSiO3:Eu3+ layers begin to crystallize on the SiO2 particles after annealing at 1000oC. The obtained core-shell phosphors have perfect spherical shape. The Eu3+ shows a strong photoluminescence (PL) (dominated by 5D0-7F2 red emission at 612 nm).
