Regulation of Phosphor's Color Gamut Area Using Mesoporous Silicate Source—A New Paradigm for the Solid‐State Lighting Segment
The inception of phosphors provoked the need of highly efficient lighting sources for the conceivable next generation applications. In this regards, a striking characteristic material namely the mesoporous silica (MPS) and their series that are quite distinct to each other in their physical properties have been synthesized by adopting a cooperative self‐assemble strategy. Utilizing it, the development of high‐performance Sr1−x Ca1−y Eu x+y SiO4 phosphor was traversed using a simple wet‐solid phase process. Systematic investigations on morphological, structural, and few other physical properties were carried out. The derived results are intriguing with a crystal clear alteration in the phosphor morphology when MPS has been used as a silicate source. Subsequent luminescence studies displayed its efficient yellow‐emitting property covering the red spectral components, along with good thermal luminescence stability. Perhaps, the designed prototype LEDs yielded a color correlation temperature (CCT) < 5000 K and color rendering index (CRI) > 80. Therefore, it directs the way for the fabrication of potential warm white LEDs with a long‐lived emission efficacy and high thermal luminescence stability.
