A comparative study between the simulated and measured cathodoluminescence generated in ZnS phosphor powder
(University of the Free State, 2003-08)
In the past few decades cathode ray tubes (CRTs) have dominated the display market because of their excellent image quality, ease and economy of manufacture. However their bulky packaging and high power consumption make ...
Luminescent properties of Y2SiO5:Ce thin films
(University of the Free State, 2010-05)
The luminescent properties of yttrium silicate doped with cerium (Y2SiO5:Ce) phosphor thin films were investigated. A detailed investigation (cathodoluminescence (CL), photoluminescence (PL) and Gaussian peak fits) was ...
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 ...
Degradation of ZnS:Cu,Au,Al phosphor powder and thin films under prolonged electron bombardment
(University of the Free State, 2001-10)
Auger electron spectroscopy (AES) and cathodoluminescence (CL), both excited by the same electron beam, were used to monitor changes in surface composition and luminous efficiency during electron bombardment. ZnS:Cu,Al,Au ...
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 ...
