Title: The effect of Eu{sup 2+} doping concentration on luminescence properties of Sr{sub 3}B{sub 2}O{sub 6}:Eu{sup 2+} yellow phosphor

Graphical abstract: - Highlights: • The concentration quenching mechanism of Sr{sub 3}B{sub 2}O{sub 6}:Eu{sup 2+}can be interpreted by the dipole–dipole (d–d) interaction of Eu{sup 2+} ions. • The average electronegativity of O{sup 2−} ions located around Eu{sup 2+} ion is 1.9991 eV. • The optimum concentration of Eu{sup 2+} ions in Sr{sub 3}B{sub 2}O{sub 6} is 7 mol%. • Sr{sub 3}B{sub 2}O{sub 6}:Eu{sup 2+} is a hexagonal crystal structure. - Abstract: The Sr{sub 3}B{sub 2}O{sub 6}:Eu{sup 2+} yellow phosphors were synthesized by high-temperature solid state reaction method. The crystal structure and optical properties of the Sr{sub 3}B{sub 2}O{sub 6}:Eu{sup 2+} phosphor was studied. Results indicate that Sr{sub 3}B{sub 2}O{sub 6}:Eu{sup 2+} has a hexagonal crystal structure. The excitation spectrum indicates that this phosphor can be effectively excited by ultraviolet light of near 390 nm and blue light of 460 nm. The emission spectrum shows a intense broad band spectrum peaking at 566 nm, which corresponds to the 4f{sup 6}({sup 7}F)5d ({sup 2}e{sub g})→{sup 8}S{sub 7/2} (4f{sup 7})transition of Eu{sup 2+} ion. The excitation spectrum is a broad asymmetric excitation band extending from 300 nm to 500 nm and the main excitation peak is at 468 nm. The average electronegativity ofmore » O{sup 2−} ions located around Eu{sup 2+} ion is 1.9991 eV. The optimum concentration of Eu{sup 2+} is 7 mol%. The concentration quenching mechanism can be interpreted by the dipole–dipole (d–d) interaction of Eu{sup 2+} ions.« less
