Synthesis and characterization of strontium (Sr), barium (Ba) and calcium (Ca) aluminate phosophors doped with rare earth ions
(University of the Free State, 2009-08)
The luminescent and structural properties of the alkaline earth aluminate phosphors prepared by solid state reaction, combustion and sol-gel methods are discussed. The Solid state and Sol-gel methods required much longer ...
Sol-gel synthesis of and luminescent properties of Pr³⁺ in different host matrices
(University of the Free State, 2009-11)
Luminescent ZrO2:Pr3+ , SiO2:Pr3+, ZnO:Pr3+ and ZnS:Pr3+ nanophosphors were synthesized by a sol-gel method, dried, ground and annealed in air at 600oC (SiO2:Pr3+, ZrO2:Pr3+, ZnO:Pr3+ and ZnS:Pr3+) or 280oC (ZrO2:Pr3+). ...
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 ...
