Abstract:

A facile solvothermal method was introduced to incorporate Eu3+ ions into the monodisperse tetragonal ZrO2 nanocrystals (NCs) with small size of ∼4 nm. The optical properties for Eu3+ doped ZrO2 NCs were investigated in detail by using the photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopy at room and low temperatures. Intense red emissions from Eu3+ ions could be achieved via the host sensitization, which was found to be much more efficient than the direct excitation of lanthanide ions. Moreover, multiple sites of Eu3+ as well as the host-to-Eu3+ energy transfer were also revealed based on the PL analyses.
