One-dimensional Ce3+- and/or Tb3+-doped X1-Y2SiO5 nanofibers and microbelts: electrospinning preparation and luminescent properties.
PL excitation and emission spectra demonstrated that there is an energy transfer from Ce(3+) to Tb(3%) in the X(1)-Y(2)SiO(5):Ce(3+),Tb( 3+) samples.
Remarkable changes in the optical properties of CeO(2) nanocrystals induced by lanthanide ions doping.
Under the excitation of 440 nm (or 426 nm) light, the colloidal solution of the undoped CeO(2) nanocrystals shows a very weak emission band with a maximum at 501 nm, which is remarkably enhanced by doping additional lanthanide ions (Eu(3+), Tb( 3+), Sm(3+))) in the CeO (2)nanocrystals.
