Luminescence Properties of Nano-Sized Sr2MgSiO5:Eu2+, Mn2+ Phosphors Prepared by the Sol–Gel Method
Abstract:Nano-sized Sr2MgSiO5:Eu2+, Mn2+ phosphor was synthesized by the sol–gel method. The preparation conditions of the precursor were determined. The effect of Eu2+ and Mn2+ content on the luminescence intensity was studied. X-ray diffraction (XRD), photoluminescence spectra (PL), and photoluminescence excitation spectra (PLE) were used to characterize the samples. The results showed that the excitation bands ranged from 250 to 450 nm, and their peaks positioned around 365 nm. The emission spectrum consists of three bands: blue, green, and red, respectively. The blue and green emission bands originate from the center of the Eu2+, while the red emission band is attributed to the energy transfer from Eu2+ to Mn2+. White light can be obtained by mixing the three emission colors. The experiment results show that the Sr2MgSiO5:Eu2+, Mn2+ is a single host phosphor with superior properties for use in white light emitting diodes (white LED).
