Title: Solvothermal synthesis of SrMoO{sub 4}:Ln (Ln = Eu{sup 3+}, Tb{sup 3+}, Dy{sup 3+}) nanoparticles and its photoluminescence properties at room temperature

Abstract

Research highlights: {yields} A facile hydrothermal process was used to fabricate luminescent nanocrystals. {yields} The PL emissions the nanocrystals can be tuned by doping different rare-earth ions. {yields} A possible formation scheme for the as-synthesized nanocrystals was presented. -- Abstract: Rare-earth ions (Eu{sup 3+}, Tb{sup 3+}, Dy{sup 3+}) doped SrMoO{sub 4} nanoparticles were prepared by solvothermal route using oleic acid as surfactant to control the particle shape and size. X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), X-ray photoelectron spectra (XPS), photoluminescence spectra (PL) and the kinetic decay times were applied to characterize the obtained samples. The XRD patterns reveal that all the doped samples are assigned to the scheelite-type tetragonal structure of SrMoO{sub 4} phase. In addition, the as-synthesized SrMoO{sub 4}:Ln (Ln = Eu{sup 3+}, Tb{sup 3+}, Dy{sup 3+}) particles are high purity well crystallized and with the average size of 30-50 nm. The possible formation process of SrMoO{sub 4}:Ln (Ln = Eu{sup 3+}, Tb{sup 3+}, Dy{sup 3+}) nanoparticles have been discussed as well. Upon excitation by ultraviolet radiation, the as-synthesized SrMoO{sub 4}:Ln (Ln = Eu{sup 3+}, Tb{sup 3+}, Dy{sup 3+}) nanoparticles exhibit the characteristic emission lines of corresponding Eu{sup 3+}, Tb{sup 3+}, Dy{sup 3+}, respectively.
