Sol-Gel Deposition and Luminescence Properties of Spherical Phosphors Ca2Y8(SiO4)6O2:Eu3+


Article Preview

Spherical SiO2 particles were coated with Ca2Y8(SiO4)6O2:Eu3+ phosphor layers through a sol-gel process. The results of XRD (X-ray diffraction) analysis indicated that the phosphors crystallized completely at 1000oC. AFM study revealed that the average grain size is 500 nm. In Ca2Y8(SiO4)6O2:Eu3+ spherical phosphors , the Eu3+ showed its characteristic red emission at 612 nm(5D0-7F2) upon excitation into its charge transfer band of Eu3+-O2- at 242nm.
