Enhancement of Mechanoluminescence from ZnS:Mn,Te by Wet Process
We successfully synthesized the novel mechanoluminescent material ZnS:Mn,Te with a wurtzite structure by controlling the pH of the solution used in the wet process. This material showed a distinct red mechanoluminescence (ML) with an increased intensity, being one order of magnitude higher than that of the sample prepared using a solid-state reaction. This marked increase in ML intensity was realized by eliminating ZnO and MnO impurities.
