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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Investigation of the luminescent properties of metal quinolates (Mqx) for use in OLED devices
(University of the Free State, 2014-01)
Since Tang and VanSlyke developed the first organic light emitting diode (OLED) in the late 80’s using tris-(8-hydroxyquinoline) aluminium (Alq3) as both the emissive and electron transporting layer, a lot of research has ...
Synthesis, characterization and luminescent mechanism of ZnS:Mn ²+ nanophosphor
(University of the Free State, 2009-11)
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 ...
