Herein, temperature dependencies of emission and emission decay of Zn2SiO4:Mn2+ powder in the range from room temperature to 300 degrees C is reported. These dependencies allow temperature sensing from luminescence measurements, since Mn2+ emission intensity, emission band spectral position, and emission decay are rapidly changing over the entire temperature range. For fluorescence intensity ratio method, measurement that relays on emission intensity changes with temperature, sensitivity of 12.2% is found. In the case of lifetime thermometry, method that relays on emission decay changes with temperature, sensitivity of 0.48% is determined. Both sensitivity values are among the highest ever recorded for inorganic materials. (C) 2013 AIP Publishing LLC.
