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 ...
Luminescence investigation of trivalent rare earth ions in sol-gel derived SiO₂ and ZnO co-doped SiO₂:Pr³⁺
(University of the Free State, 2011-05)
Tb3+-Pr3+ , Ce3+-Pr3+ , and Eu3+-Pr3+ ion pairs co-doped in SiO2 were successfully synthesized using a sol gel method to produce rare earth activated oxide nanophosphors. Green emitting ZnO nanoparticles were also successfully ...
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 ...
