Title: Hydrothermal synthesis and characteristics of anions-doped calcium molybdate red powder phosphors

Graphical abstract: - Highlights: • Four anion-doped CaMoO{sub 4}:Eu{sup 3+} red phosphors were prepared by hydrothermal approach. • Some samples exhibit nearly spherical morphology and well-distributed fine particles. • The red luminescence can be obviously enhanced after certain amount of anion doping. • The improved phosphor system is a potential candidate for white LED applications. - Abstract: Applying hydrothermal and subsequent heat-treatment process, CaMoO{sub 4}:Eu{sup 3+} was doped with four anions (SiO{sub 3}{sup 2−}, PO{sub 4}{sup 3−}, SO{sub 4}{sup 2−} and ClO{sub 3}{sup −}) to prepare fine red powder phosphors. The introduction of small amount of anions into the host had little influence on the structure, which was confirmed by X-ray diffraction patterns. The anion-doped phosphor samples (except SiO{sub 3}{sup 2−}) exhibited nearly spherical morphology, and the particle sizes were in the range of 0.3–0.4 μm for SO{sub 4}{sup 2−}-doped samples, and 0.8–1.2 μm for PO{sub 4}{sup 3−} and ClO{sub 3}{sup −}-doped samples. Excited with 395 nm near-UV light, all samples showed typical Eu{sup 3+} red emission at 615 nm, and PO{sub 4}{sup 3−}, SO{sub 4}{sup 2−} and ClO{sub 3}{sup −}-doped samples enhanced the red luminescence as compared with the individual CaMoO{sub 4}:Eu{sup 3+} sample. In particular, relative emission intensitymore » for optimum ClO{sub 3}{sup −}-doped phosphors reached more than 6-fold that of the commercial red phosphor, which is highly desirable for the powder phosphors used in the solid-state lighting industry.« less
