Synthesis and characterization of down−conversion nanophosphors
(University of the Free State, 2014-10)
Luminescent zinc aluminate (ZnAl2O4) nanoparticles, crystalline–low quartz and amorphous silica powders were incorporated with Ce3+ and Tb3+ ions. These powders were successfully synthesized by the solution combustion and ...
Study on luminescence and structural properties of vanadates phosphors
(University of the Free State, 2016-01)
A self-activated yellow emitting zinc vanadate (Zn2 Y20 1) was synthesized by combustion method. The influence of the processing parameters such as synthesis temperature and dopants concentration on the structure, ...
Theoretical and experimental study of core-shell structured ZnO/ZnS and growth mechanism of un-doped and doped ZnO nanomaterials
(University of the Free State (Qwaqwa Campus), 2017-12)
There is currently widespread interest among researchers in ZnO-ZnS coreshell nanorods as electrodes in prototype solar cells. ZnS has been proposed as a suit- able inorganic sensitizer to ZnO because ZnO and ZnS when in ...
Luminescent properties of synthesized PbS nanoparticle phosphors
(University of the Free State, 2008-08)
Luminescent lead sulphide (PbS) nanoparticles embedded in an amorphous silica (SiO2) matrix were synthesized at room temperature by a sol-gel process. The prepared nanocomposite materials were crushed into powders and ...
Luminescence from lanthanide ions and the effect of co-doping in silica and other hosts
(University of the Free State, 2012-07)
Amorphous silica powders doped with lanthanide ions were synthesised by the sol-gel method and their cathodoluminescence (CL) and photoluminescence (PL) emissions were compared. Interesting differences depending on the ...
Sol-gel synthesis and characterization of MAl2O4 (M = Zn or Mg) spinels doped, co-doped and triply doped nano-phosphors
(University of the Free State (Qwaqwa Campus), 2014-12)
The luminescent and structural properties of the MAl2O4 (M = Zn, Mg) (which are thereafter referred as hosts) phosphors prepared by sol-gel methods at a relatively low temperature (~80 °C) are discussed. Zinc, magnesium ...
