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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
Y6(WMo)(0.5)O12 activated with Eu(3+) ions was investigated as a red-emitting conversion phosphor for white light emitting diodes (WLEDs). The phosphors were synthesized by calcining a citrate-complexation precursor at different temperatures. The photoluminescence properties of the phosphors and the energy transfer mechanisms involved were studied as a(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)
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)
