Red optical properties of Pr3+-doped Ca2SnO4 compounds prepared by the solid-state reaction at different atmospheres were investigated. Comparing with the air-sintered phosphor, a significant enhancement of the red emission intensity was observed for the vacuum-sintered phosphor. This improvement could be attributed to the increased oxygen vacancies, which act as the sensitizers for the effective energy transfer (ET) from Ca2SnO4 host to Pr3+. This study demonstrated that the ET process between the host and rare-earth ions in Ca2SnO4 was closely related to the oxygen vacancies.
