Title: Structure, upconversion photoluminescence, and dielectric properties of Ho{sup 3+}- and Yb{sup 3+}-codoped tetragonal tungsten bronze Sr{sub 4}La{sub 2}Ti{sub 4}Nb{sub 6}O{sub 30}

Highlights: • TTB-type SLTN: Ho-Ybx with space group P4/mbm was determined. • UC photoluminescence of SLTN: Ho-Ybx ceramics was first reported. • Bright UC green emission was observed at room temperature. • Two-photon energy transfer process was confirmed for the UC processes. • Temperature stability of dielectric permittivity was improved for SLTN: Ho-Ybx. - Abstract: Ho{sup 3+}- and Yb{sup 3+}-codoped Sr{sub 4}La{sub 2}Ti{sub 4}Nb{sub 6}O{sub 30} (Sr{sub 4}La{sub 1.94–x}Ho{sub 0.06}Yb{sub x}Ti{sub 4}Nb{sub 6}O{sub 30}, abbreviated as SLTN: Ho-Ybx) ceramics have been synthesized, and their structural, up-conversion (UC) photoluminescence, and dielectric properties have been carefully investigated. Through Rietveld structural refinement, SLTN: Ho-Ybx samples are determined as single tetragonal tungsten bronze (TTB) phase with space group P4/mbm in which larger Sr{sup 2+} ions fill the A{sub 2}-sites, relative smaller La{sup 3+}, Ho{sup 3+}, and Yb{sup 3+} ions occupy the A{sub 1}-sites, while Ti{sup 4+} and Nb{sup 4+} ions fill the B-sites. Under 980 nm near infrared (NIR) excitation, bright UC green emission, relatively weak red and near-infrared (NIR) emissions, originating from {sup 5}F{sub 4}/{sup 5}S{sub 2} → {sup 5}I{sub 8}, {sup 5}F{sub 5} → {sup 5}I{sub 8}, and {sup 5}F{sub 4}/{sup 5}S{sub 2} → {sup 5}I{sub 7} transitions of Ho{sup 3+} ions,more » are confirmed for SLTN: Ho-Ybx. Two-photon energy transfer process is proved through pumping laser power dependence of emission intensity measurement. Furthermore, the influence of Ho{sup 3+}- and Yb{sup 3+}- ions on the dielectric properties of SLTN: Ho-Ybx is also investigated and the temperature stability of dielectric permittivity is improved.« less
