The luminescence properties of Eu2+ doped Na2CaMg(PO4)2 phosphor

Applied Physics A (Impact Factor: 1.69). 06/2010; 99(4):859-863. DOI: 10.1007/s00339-010-5614-3

ABSTRACT The blue-emitting phosphors of Eu2+-doped Na2CaMg(PO4)2 were prepared by high-temperature solid-state reaction. The crystal phase formation was confirmed by X-ray powder diffraction
measurement. The luminescence properties were investigated by photoluminescence excitation and emission spectra. The phosphor
exhibited the blue luminescence due to the 4f65d1→4f7 transition of Eu2+ ions under the excitation of near UV light. The influence of temperature on the luminescence intensities and decay lifetimes
of Eu2+ was investigated. An unusual increase of the decay lifetimes of the 4f65d emission of Eu2+ ion is observed in Na2CaMg(PO4)2 from 10 K to room temperature. The thermal stability of the luminescence of Eu2+-doped Na2CaMg(PO4)2 was discussed.

    ABSTRACT: New measurements of the Zeeman effect and of the flourescent lifetime as a function of temperature of Eu2+ in CaF2 are reported. Estimates of the theoretical parameters are made, and it is shown that neither these estimated values nor the magnetic splitting support those simplified models, used to explain the Faraday rotation, that neglect either the crystal field or the Coulomb interaction between the 5d and the (4f)6 electrons. Evidence is given that the relative intensity of the Zeeman components in emission is dominated by "spin-memory" effects rather than by thermalization between the Zeeman levels of the excited state.

    ABSTRACT: Fluorescence lifetimes of Eu2+ doped in CaF2 are measured at various temperatures between 4 and 450 K. The lifetime increases between 100 and 320 K, in contrast to the usual lifetime–temperature dependence. At higher or lower temperatures, the lifetime decreases with increasing temperature. This phenomenon is explained by simulation of the energy levels and lifetimes of low-lying 4f65d states involved in the fluorescence.

    ABSTRACT: fd-excitation, absorption, reflection, and df-emission spectra presented in the literature on Eu2+ in inorganic compounds have been gathered and re-analyzed. Emission wavelength, width of the emission band, absorption wavelength, Stokes shift, and redshift pertaining to Eu2+ in more than 300 different compounds (fluorides, chlorides, bromide, iodides, oxides, sulfides, selenides, and nitrides) are presented. From the data, it is possible to predict for each of the 13 lanthanide ions (La2+, Ce2+, Pr2+, until Yb2+), doped in any of the compounds compiled, the energy of the transition from the 4fn ground state to the first 4fn−15d level and also the energy of df-emission. A brief overview on the relationships between redshift, Stokes shift, and the width of the emission with the type of compound is given.
