(Y0.5Lu0.5)(2)O-3:Eu3+ nanopowders: Combustion synthesis, structure and optical properties
MetadataShow full item record
In this work we explored the possibility of obtaining nanocrystalline (Y0.5Lu0.5)(2)O-3 powders, doped with europium and co-doped with praseodium, employing polymer complex solution synthesis. Polyethylene glycol, with average molecular weight 200, served both as a fuel and dispersing medium for nanocrystals formation. We investigated structure, morphology, luminescence emission and decay characteristics of obtained powders and how different concentrations of Pr co-dopant affect theirs optical characteristics.
