A series of 6 mol% Eu(3+) doped Gd2MoO6 samples were prepared by using the sol-gel method. The X-ray diffraction patterns of the samples confirmed their monoclinic structure after they were annealed at 1300 °C, and a scanning electron microscope image revealed closely packed particles. The excitation spectra showed that the intensity of the excitation band(More)
Hexagonal monodisperse NaCeF(4) and NaCeF(4):Tb(3+) nanorods have been successfully synthesized by a polyol-mediated solvothermal route with ethylene glycol (EG) as solvent. The crystalline phase, size, morphology, and luminescence properties were characterized using X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron(More)
A series of new double perovskite tungstate Ba2CaWO6:xDy(3+) (0.01⩽x⩽0.15) phosphors were synthesized via solid state reaction process. XRD analysis confirmed the phase formation of Ba2CaWO6:Dy(3+) materials. The photoluminescence excitation and emission spectra, concentration effect, thermal-quenching, and decay property were investigated. The phosphor(More)
Lu(6)WO(12) and Lu(6)MoO(12) doped with Eu(3+) ions have been prepared by using a citrate complexation route, followed by calcination at different temperatures. The morphology, structure, and optical and photoluminescence properties of the compounds were studied as a function of calcination temperature. Both compositions undergo transitions from a cubic to(More)
Eu(3+) doped CaGd4O7 phosphors have been newly synthesized using a solvothermal reaction method and sintered at 1400 °C. The phase, composition, morphologies, and photoluminescent properties of the phosphors have been well characterized by means of the X-ray diffraction (XRD) patterns, energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX), field emission scanning(More)
We report the properties of upconversion luminescence on Yttrium aluminum perovoskite (YAIO3) doped with trivalent erbium at concentrations of 1, 2, 3, 5 and 7 mol%. The samples were synthesized by solvo-thermal reaction method and the XRD patterns conforms that the YAP:Er(3+) nanophosphors have orthorhombic phase. Efficient green and red upconversion (UC)(More)
CaTiO3:Pr3+ nanocrystals were synthesized by solvothermal method. The as-prepared powders crystallized to the pure orthorhombic phase after calcination at 600 degrees C in air for 3 hours. CaTiO3:Pr3+ nanocrystals are petaline in shape with the decrease of the reactant concentration. The corresponding bulk CaTiO3:Pr3+ was synthesized by high temperature(More)
In this paper, CaSnO3:Eu3+ nanocrystals were prepared by hydrothermal synthesis method. The influence of different molar ratio of Ca:Sn on structure of CaSnO3:Eu3+ was investigated by using X-ray powder diffraction (XRD). Well-crystallized and phase-pure CaSnO3:Eu3+ particles of approximately 90 nm in size can be readily obtained at 900 degrees C.(More)
Charge transfer (CT) energy from the ligand to the central ions is an important factor in luminescence properties for rare earth doped inorganic phosphors. The dielectric theory of complex crystals was used to calculate chemical bond properties. Combining the photoluminescence and the dielectric theory of complex crystals, the CT bands of O(2-)-Eu(3+),(More)
Eu(3+)-doped tetragonal and monoclinic ZrO2 (called t-ZrO2:Eu and m-ZrO2:Eu, respectively) nanoparticles were prepared using the Pechini sol-gel process. The samples were characterized via X-ray diffraction (XRD) and field-emission-scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM), and with photoluminescence spectra. The influences of the Eu3+ concentration and the(More)
