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 ...
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 ...
Characterization of Gd2O2S: Tb³+ phosphor powder and thin films
(University of the Free State, 2011-06)
Under Ultra violet (UV), cathode-ray and X-ray excitation, terbium activated rare earth oxysulphide (Gd2O2S:Tb3+) phosphors shows bright green luminescence. Due to its superior luminescent performance, Gd2O2S:Tb3+ phosphor ...
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 ...
Cathodoluminescence degradation and surface characterization of SrGa₂S₄:Ce³⁺ power and thin films
(University of the Free State, 2011-05)
The structure, morphology and luminescent properties of commercial SrGa2S4:Ce3+ phosphor powder and thin films were investigated. The phosphor shows bright blue under ultraviolet (UV) excitation. Measurements were carried ...
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 ...
