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 ...
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 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 ...
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+). ...
Theoretical and experimental study of core-shell structured ZnO/ZnS and growth mechanism of un-doped and doped ZnO nanomaterials
(University of the Free State (Qwaqwa Campus), 2017-12)
There is currently widespread interest among researchers in ZnO-ZnS coreshell nanorods as electrodes in prototype solar cells. ZnS has been proposed as a suit- able inorganic sensitizer to ZnO because ZnO and ZnS when in ...
