Title: Introducing Eu{sup 2+} into yellow phosphor LiBaB{sub 9}O{sub 15}:Ce{sup 3+}, Dy{sup 3+} as blue emitting source to realize white emission

Abstract

A series of Dy{sup 3+}, Ce{sup 3+}/Dy{sup 3+}, Eu{sup 2+}/Dy{sup 3+} and Ce{sup 3+}/Eu{sup 2+}/Dy{sup 3+} doping LiBaB{sub 9}O{sub 15} (LBB) phosphors were synthesized via a high temperature solid-state method. LBB:Dy{sup 3+} cannot create light under ultraviolet radiation, however, LBB:Ce{sup 3+}, Dy{sup 3+} can produce yellow emission under 295 nm excitation. The energy transfer occurs from Ce{sup 3+} to Dy{sup 3+} ions via electric dipole-dipole interaction and the critical distance is estimated to be 21.15 Å based on concentration quenching model. Generally, Eu{sup 2+} ion is a sensitizer to Dy{sup 3+} ion, however, there is only the emission of Eu{sup 2+} in LBB:Eu{sup 2+}, Dy{sup 3+}, which means there is no energy transfer from Eu{sup 2+} to Dy{sup 3+} ions. Interestingly enough, when doping Eu{sup 2+} ion into LBB:Ce{sup 3+}, Dy{sup 3+}, white emission can be achieved by increase the blue (350–425 nm) emission intensity. The spectral property, quantum efficiency, CIE chromaticity coordinates and thermal quenching property of LBB:Ce{sup 3+}, Eu{sup 2+}, Dy{sup 3+} are investigated. The results indicate that LBB:Ce{sup 3+}, Eu{sup 2+}, Dy{sup 3+} may be a potential application to white light emitting diodes. - Graphical abstract: LBB:Ce{sup 3+}, Dy{sup 3+} can create white emission by doping Eu{supmore » 2+} ions. - Highlights: • LBB:Ce{sup 3+}, Dy{sup 3+} can produce white emission by doping Eu{sup 2+} ion. • There is no energy transfer from Eu{sup 2+} to Dy{sup 3+} ions. • Energy transfer occurs from Ce{sup 3+} to Dy{sup 3+} ions. • LBB:Ce{sup 3+}, Eu{sup 2+}, Dy{sup 3+} may be a potential application for white LEDs.« less

  • The Sr{sub 3}Al{sub 2}O{sub 5}Cl{sub 2}:Ce{sup 3+},Eu{sup 2+} phosphors were prepared by solid state reaction. The obtained phosphors exhibit a strong absorption in the UV-visible region and have two intense emission bands at 444 and 609 nm. The energy transfer from the Ce{sup 3+} to Eu{sup 2+} ions was observed, and the critical distance has been estimated to be about 24.5 A by spectral overlap method. Furthermore, the developed phosphors can generate lights from yellow-to-white region under the excitation of UV radiation by appropriately tuning the activator content, indicating that they have potential applications as an UV-convertible phosphor for whitemore » light emitting diodes.« less
  • Highlights: • A single phase Ba{sub 9}Lu{sub 2}Si{sub 6}O{sub 24}:Eu{sup 2+}, Ce{sup 3+}, Mn{sup 2+} phosphor with full-color emission was obtained by solid-state reactions. • Eu{sup 2+}, Ce{sup 3+}, and Mn{sup 2+} acts as blue, green, and red luminescence centers, respectively. • The BLS:Eu{sup 2+}, Ce{sup 3+}, Mn{sup 2+} phosphor shows a high quantum efficient of ∼62% and a good color stability. • Combining this single phosphor with a 395 nm NUV-chip, an ideal white LED with a high CRI of 85 and a CCT of 6300 K was obtained. - Abstract: We obtained a single phase BLS:Eu{sup 2+}, Ce{supmore » 3+}, Mn{sup 2+} phosphor by solid-state reactions. Eu{sup 2+}, Ce{sup 3+}, and Mn{sup 2+} gives rise to the blue, green, and red emission, respectively. The Mn{sup 2+} red emission can be effectively enhanced via energy transfers from both Eu{sup 2+} and Ce{sup 3+}. Thus a tunable full color emission from 410 to 750 nm was realized in this single phosphor. The Eu{sup 2+} → Mn{sup 2+} energy transfer mechanism was investigated by the fluorescence decay curves. This single phosphor exhibits an efficient excitation band covering from 390 to 410 nm, which matches well with the emission light of the efficient NUV chips. The optimized BLS:Eu{sup 2+}, Ce{sup 3+}, Mn{sup 2+} phosphor shows a high quantum efficient of ∼62% and a good color stability. When this single phosphor was combined with a 395 nm NUV-chip, an ideal white LED with a high color render index (CRI) of 85 and a correlated color temperature (CCT) of 6300 K was obtained. This demonstrates the promising application of the BLS:Eu{sup 2+}, Ce{sup 3+}, Mn{sup 2+} single phosphor for the NUV-based white LEDs.« less
