Preparation and Luminescence Properties of CaWO4:Eu3+ Red Emitting Phosphor for White LEDs
Abstract:A series of Ca1-xWO4:xEu3+ (i.e., x = 0.10, 0.15, 0.20, 0.25 and 0.30) and Ca0.5WO4:0.25Eu3+,0.25Mx (i.e., M = Li, Na and K) red phosphor samples were synthesized for white LEDs via a high temperature solid state reaction. The crystal structure of the samples was characterized by X-ray diffraction, and the effect of Eu3+ and M+ doping quantity on the luminescence properties of phosphors was investigated by fluorescence spectrophotometry. The results show that Ca1-xWO4:xEu3+ and Ca0.5WO4:0.25Eu3+,0.25M+ crystallines synthesized are a tetragonal scheelite structure. The phosphors can be effectively excited by near-UV (393 nm) and blue light (464 nm), and the major peak is located at 615 nm due to the 5D0→7F2 transition of Eu3+. Also, the optimum doping quantity of Eu3+ in Ca1-xWO4:xEu3+ phosphors is 25% in mole fraction, and the introduction of alkalis ion M+ as a charge compensator can improve the luminous intensity of Ca0.75WO4:0.25Eu3+:M+. The optimal doping ion in phosphor is Li+.
