Luminescence investigations of CaS:Eu2+ powder and pulsed laser deposited thin films for application in light emitting diodes
(University of the Free State, 2015-06)
The main objective of this thesis was to investigate the luminescent properties of commercial CaS:Eu2+ powder and pulsed laser deposited thin films for application in light emitting diodes. X-ray diffraction (XRD), X-ray ...
Synthesis and characterization of MgAl₂O₄ and (MgxZn₁-x)Al₂O₄) mixed spinel phospors
(University of the Free State, 2014-01)
Magnesium aluminate (MgAl2O4) has received special attention as a technologically important material because of its attractive properties, such as mechanical strength, chemical inertness, a wideband gap, relatively low ...
Luminescence properties of Y2O3:Bi3+ as powder and thin film phosphor for solar cell application
(University of the Free State, 2015-07)
The luminescent properties of the bismuth doped yttrium oxide (Y2-xO3:Bix) phosphor material was investigated as a powder and as thin films for possible application as a down-conversion material for solar cells. The goal ...
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 ...
Characterization of SrAl₂O₄:Eu²⁺,Dy³⁺ nano thin films prepared by pulsed laser deposition
(University of the Free State, 2010-11)
English: Thin films of SrAl2O4:Eu2+,Dy3+ phosphor were deposited on silicon (Si (100)) substrates using a 248 nm KrF pulsed laser. Deposition parameters, namely; substrate temperature, pulse repetition rate, number of laser ...
