Synthesis and characterization of down−conversion nanophosphors
(University of the Free State, 2014-10)
Luminescent zinc aluminate (ZnAl2O4) nanoparticles, crystalline–low quartz and amorphous silica powders were incorporated with Ce3+ and Tb3+ ions. These powders were successfully synthesized by the solution combustion and ...
Luminescent properties of synthesized PbS nanoparticle phosphors
(University of the Free State, 2008-08)
Luminescent lead sulphide (PbS) nanoparticles embedded in an amorphous silica (SiO2) matrix were synthesized at room temperature by a sol-gel process. The prepared nanocomposite materials were crushed into powders and ...
Luminescence from lanthanide ions and the effect of co-doping in silica and other hosts
(University of the Free State, 2012-07)
Amorphous silica powders doped with lanthanide ions were synthesised by the sol-gel method and their cathodoluminescence (CL) and photoluminescence (PL) emissions were compared. Interesting differences depending on the ...
Luminescent properties of combustion synthesized BaAl2O4:Eu²+ and (Ba1-xSrx)Al2O4:Eu²+ phosphors co-doped with different rare earth ions
(University of the Free State, 2011-11)
A Combustion method was used to prepare all the alkaline earth aluminates (rare-earths doped BaAl2O4, BaSrAl2O4 and BaZnAl2O4) phosphor powders in this study. Measurements of these phosphor powders were carried out using ...
