Epitaxial garnet films of Sc3+ and Tb3+ co-doped lutetium aluminum garnet (LuAG) were grown by the isothermal liquid phase epitaxy. Due to the Sc co-doping, an increase of Tb-related radioluminescence and photoluminescence intensities was observed. The photoluminescence of 5D4(Tb3+) emission shows one exponential decay with τ ~ 3 ms. The decay time… CONTINUE READING
