Title: Sol–gel synthesis, structure and luminescence properties of Ba{sub 2}ZnMoO{sub 6}:Eu{sup 3+} phosphors

Graphical abstract: The phosphor powders of Ba{sub 2}ZnMoO{sub 6}:Eu{sup 3+} were prepared by sol–gel method. The dependence of luminescence intensity on the Eu{sup 3+} concentration was investigated. - Highlights: • We synthesize Ba{sub 2}ZnMoO{sub 6}:Eu{sup 3+} phosphors by the sol–gel method. • The effect of temperature on the crystallinity and morphology is investigated. • The phosphor presents an intense CT band in near UV range (370–410 nm). • The concentration quenching mechanism is the exchange interaction. - Abstract: Double-perovskite Ba{sub 2}Zn{sub 1−x}MoO{sub 6}:xEu{sup 3+} (x = 0, 0.02, 0.04, 0.06, 0.08, 0.1) orange–red emitting phosphors were synthesized by using the sol–gel method. The crystalline structure and photoluminescence properties of the phosphors were investigated. The X-ray diffraction (XRD) patterns indicate that the structure of matrix Ba{sub 2}ZnMoO{sub 6} is cubic double-perovskite with space group Fm-3m. The Ba{sub 2}ZnMoO{sub 6}:Eu{sup 3+} phosphors present an intense broad charge transfer (CT) band absorption in near UV range (370–410 nm), which attributes to the charge transfer state of MoO{sub 6}, and performs orange–red emission of Eu{sup 3+} ({sup 5}D{sub 0} → {sup 7}F{sub 1} transition) at around 596 nm. A low concentration quenching occurs in Ba{sub 2}ZnMoO{sub 6}:Eu{sup 3+} and the optimal doping concentration ismore » about 6 mol%. The Ba{sub 2}ZnMoO{sub 6}:Eu{sup 3+} phosphors are considered to be a promising orange–red emitting phosphor for near ultraviolet GaN-based white light emitting diode.« less
