Synthesis, characterization and luminescent mechanism of ZnS:Mn²+ nanophosphor
(University of the Free State, 2009-11-30)
ZnS:Mn2+ is commercially used in field emission displays (FEDs) and biological imaging of brain tumors. This study was done to determine the luminescent mechanism of both bulk and nano sized ZnS:Mn2+. Luminescent zinc ...
Characterization of Y3(Al,Ga)5O12:Ce3+ phosphor thin films prepared by pulsed laser deposition
(University of the Free State, 2013-11)
The morphological and luminescent properties of Y3(Al,Ga)5O12:Ce3+ powder phosphor were investigated. Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) revealed the phosphor’s agglomerated particles with a size ranging from 0.4μm to ...
Red emission of Praseodymium ions (Pr ³⁺)
(University of the Free State, 2011-11)
English: Red glowing phosphors were prepared by adding Pr3+ ions as activators to several oxide host matrixes; CaTiO3, LaTaO4, YTaO4, and GdTaO4. The perovskite CaTiO3:Pr3+ compound is a phosphor that glows with a single ...
Tunable multicolour emission from dysprosium-doped mixed rare-earths oxyorthosilicate nanophosphors for application in ultraviolet-pumped multicolour and white light emitting diodes
(University of the Free State, 2015-02)
Phosphors have many uses today in applications such as electronic information displays, solid state lighting, solar cells, advertising and theft prevention. By using urea-assisted solution combustion method, we prepared ...
