Optical Properties of Y2O3:Eu3+ Red Emitting Phosphor Obtained via Spray Pyrolysis
MetadataShow full item record
In the present work we explored the possibility of obtaining Y2O3:Eu3+ mu m-size particles by an ultrasonic spray pyrolysis method. As-prepared sample constitutes of spherical, hollow particles with an average size of 1 to 2 mu m. Pure, well crystalline, cubic Y2O3 is formed after additional thermal treatment at 800 degrees C for 2 h. A detailed optical investigation has been done with photoluminescence measurements in the energy and time domains. Experimental intensity parameters, transition rates and quantum efficiency of the D-5(0) emission are evaluated on the basis of Judd-Ofelt theory.
