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+). ...
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 ...
Persistent luminescence mechanism of tantalite phosphors
(University of the Free State, 2014-11)
Pr3+ ion doped ZnTa2O6, SrTa2O6, CaTa2O6 and ZnTaGaO5 phosphors, which display persistent luminescence were prepared by solid state chemical reaction at 1200 oC for 4 hours. A ZnTa2O6:Pr3+ phosphor that resembled an ...
Thermal, structural and luminescent properties of long after-glow MAlxOy:Eu²+,Dy³+ (M: Sr, Ba) phosphors
(University of the Free State, 2010-11)
The optimization of properties for new and potentially useful materials becomes a continuous and sometimes a lifelong process if future applications are anticipated. Research on luminescent materials is a good example of ...
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 ...
