Three-dimensionally ordered macroporous (3DOM) ZrO2:Eu3+ (0.5%, 1%, 2% and 5%) were successfully prepared using a polystyrene (PS) colloidal crystal template in combination with a sol–gel method. The structure, morphology, porosity, and optical properties of the materials were well characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Field emission scanning electron micrograph (FESEM), N2 adsorption, and photoluminescence (PL) spectra. The results indicated that the closely packed material exhibited three-dimensional ordering of pores and a strong red 5D07F2 transitions under charge transfer excitation. Strong PL and abundant porosity are of particular interest and give this multifunctional material future potential.
