Microwave-Assisted Hydrothermal Preparation of YVO4:Eu3+ Phosphor


Article Preview

YVO4:Eu3+ phosphors were prepared by microwave hydrothermal method in this work. YVO4:Eu3+ phosphors were probed by photoluminescence (PL), X-ray powder diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscope (SEM). The effects of different preparation conditions on the photoluminescence, the structure and the morphology of YVO4:Eu3+ phosphors were studied. The experiment results show that the pH value and the Eu3+ doping amount have some important effect on the photoluminescence and the morphology of YVO4:Eu3+phosphors.
