Long afterglow phosphors of Sr2MgSi2O7:Eu,Dy were prepared by high temperature solid state reaction in oxidation atmospheres, and then were treated sequentially in reducing atmosphere → oxidation atmosphere → reducing atmosphere. The crystal structure of the samples was investigated by using powder X-ray diffraction (XRD). The measurements of the photoluminescence and the thermoluminescence properties suggest the difference in the luminescent properties between Eu2+ and Eu3+. Eu3+ ions occupy two different sites, and their emission spectra consist of four discrete line spectra, due to the 5D07F1 (590 nm), 5D07F2 (618 nm), 5D07F4 (703 nm) and the 5D27F3 (510 nm) transitions. But in contrast, the emission spectrum of Eu2+ is characteristic of a broadband spectrum due to the 4f7 → 4f6 5d1 transition. The luminescence of Sr2MgSi2O7:Eu2+,Dy3+ displays both higher intensity and longer decay than that of Sr2MgSi2O7:Eu3+,Dy3+. The emissions from Dy3+ are detected in all samples, indicating that Dy3+ ions act not only the trap center but also the luminescence center in the host lattice of Sr2MgSi2O7.
