Title: An orange emitting phosphor Lu{sub 2−x}CaMg{sub 2}Si{sub 2.9}Ti{sub 0.1}O{sub 12}:xCe with pure garnet phase for warm white LEDs

A new silicate garnet phosphor, Lu{sub 2−x}CaMg{sub 2}Si{sub 2.9}Ti{sub 0.1}O{sub 12}:xCe was synthesized by a high temperature solid-state reaction under reductive atmosphere. X-ray diffraction (XRD) showed that the powder was pure garnet phase. The emission and excitation spectrum indicated that the Lu{sub 2−x}CaMg{sub 2}Si{sub 2.9}Ti{sub 0.1}O{sub 12}:xCe phosphors could absorb blue light in the spectral range of 400–550 nm efficiently and exhibit bright yellow–orange emission in the range of 520–750 nm. With the increase of Ce{sup 3+} concentration, the emission band of Ce{sup 3+} showed a red shift. Interestingly, the concentration quenching occurred when the Ce{sup 3+} concentration exceeded 4 mol%. The temperature-dependent luminescent properties of the phosphors were discussed and the Lu{sub 1.96}CaMg{sub 2}Si{sub 2.9}Ti{sub 0.1}O{sub 12}:0.04Ce phosphors showed good performances in color temperature (2430 K) and potential applications for warm white LEDs. - Graphical Abstract: This image shows that the phosphor of Lu{sub 1.96}CaMg{sub 2}Si{sub 2.9}Ti{sub 0.1}O{sub 12}:0.04Ce can generate a uniform yellow tint under natural light illumination and emit orange–red light when excited by blue light. With a fixed 467 nm emission light, warm white light can be produced by this phosphor, which indicates that the phosphor is potentially applicable in warm white light emitting diodes basedmore » on GaN chips. - Highlights: • A new silicate garnet phosphor was synthesized by solid-state method. • Secondary phases can be avoided when a small amount of Si{sup 4+} were replaced by Ti{sup 4+}. • A broad emission band of Ce{sup 3+} in the phosphors was described. • The phosphors are potentially applicable in warm white light emitting diodes.« less
