Title: Luminescence properties of Ca{sub 14}Mg{sub 2}(SiO{sub 4}){sub 8}:Eu{sup 2+} from various Eu{sup 2+} sites for white-light-emitting diodes

Ca{sub 14}Mg{sub 2}(SiO{sub 4}){sub 8}:Eu{sup 2+} phosphors were synthesized by solid-state reaction method, and their luminescence properties were investigated. In the emission spectra, several overlapping emission bands originating from various Eu{sup 2+} sites were found. Eu{sup 2+} in Ca{sub 14}Mg{sub 2}(SiO{sub 4}){sub 8} exhibits green emission around 506 nm, and the sample doped with 0.1 mol% Eu{sup 2+} shows the strongest brightness under 365 nm excitation with the quantum efficiency of 63.6%. In the excitation spectra, strong and broad excitation bands from 250 to 450 nm were observed, which could well match with the emission wavelength of the light-emitting diode chip. The fabrication test on the InGaN chip indicates the Ca{sub 14}Mg{sub 2}(SiO{sub 4}){sub 8}:Eu{sup 2+} phosphor could be promising candidate for white light-emitting diodes.
