Synthesis and Luminescence Properties of Sr2SiO4: Eu3+, Dy3+ Phosphors by the Sol–Gel Method
Abstract:The Sr2SiO4:Eu3+, Dy3+ phosphors for white light emitting diodes (LEDs) were synthesized by the sol–gel method. The microstructure and luminescent properties of the obtained Sr2SiO4:Eu3+, Dy3+ particles were well characterized. The results demonstrate that the Sr2SiO4:Eu3+, Dy3+ particles, which have spherical morphology, emitted an intensive white light emission under excitation at 386 nm. The phosphors show three emission peaks: the blue emission at 486 nm corresponding to the 4F9/2-6H15/2 transition of Dy3+, the yellow emission at 575 nm corresponding to the 4F9/2-6H13/2 transition of Dy3+, and the red emission at 615 nm corresponding to the 5D0-7F2 transition of Eu3+. At the same time, the effect of Eu3+ concentration on the emission intensities of Sr2SiO4:Eu3+, Dy3+ was investigated in detail. The phosphors used for white LEDs were obtained by combining near ultraviolet (NUV) light (386 nm) with Sr2SiO4:0.04Dy3+, 0.01Eu3+ phosphors with the characteristic of Commission Internationale de l'Eclairage (CIE) chromaticity coordinate (x, y) of (0.33, 0.34), and color temperature T c of 5,603 K. In addition, the effect of the charge compensators (Li+, Na+, and K+ ions) on the photoluminescence (PL) emission intensities were studied.
