Photoluminescence of Chromium Doped Fluorapatites

Fluorapatite is a member of the apatite mineral family. Most of the naturally occurring apatite is fluorapatite. Synthetic fluorapatite was synthesised using high temperature solid state reaction. The influence of chromium dopant on the luminescence of fluorapatite was investigated. It was found that these chromium ions introduce three additional emission… CONTINUE READING
