Luminescence Properties of Y(P,V)O4 Synthesized by Microwave Heating
Eu3+ doped and undoped Y(P,V)O4 phosphors were prepared using multi-mode and single-mode microwave oven operated at 2.45 GHz. In the case of the microwave heating method, the phosphor particles were non-aggregated. A homogeneous distribution of Eu ion was observed in the microwave synthesis. No sintering behavior found in the microwave heating may be attributed to a quite shorter heating time. The Eu3+ doped sample synthesized by microwave heating showed intense red emission under UV excitation.
