How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

LuPO4 in the form of nano-powders can find potential application in bio-imaging and luminescence thermometry. To enable development of functional materials there is a need to acquire basic information about the effect of morphology and grain size on spectroscopic properties. So, we investigated a series of Nd³⁺-doped LuPO4 nanoparticles prepared wi...
We report a detailed analysis of both structural characterization and high-resolution spectroscopic properties of Nd³⁺-doped YPO4 and LuPO4 in the form of nano/micro powders. LuPO4, like YPO4 crystalizes in a zircon-type tetragonal system. Nd³⁺ ion in substitution of Lu³⁺ or Y³⁺ cations occupies the main symmetry site D2d and the presence of additi...
We present and discuss the structural and spectroscopic properties of micro-crystalline Nd³⁺-doped LuPO4 zircon-(xenotime)-type orthophosphates (0.5–20 mol% of Nd³⁺ ions) synthesized by high-temperature solid-state reaction, in which Nd³⁺ optical rare earth ion plays the role of a structural probe. Surprisingly, in the literature there are not many...
