Tb3+‐doped and Eu2+, Tb3+ co‐doped Ca9Y(PO4)7 phosphors were synthesized by conventional solid‐state method. Additionally, the luminescence properties, decay behavior and energy transfer mechanism have already been investigated in detail. The green emission intensity of Tb3+ ions under NUV excitation is weak due to its spin‐forbidden f‐f transition. While Eu2+ can efficiently absorb NUV light and yield broad blue emission, most of which can be absorbed by Tb3+ ions. Thus, the emission color can be easily tuned from cyan to green through the energy transfer of Eu2+→Tb3+ in Ca9Y(PO4)7:Eu2+,Tb3+ phosphor. In this work, the phenomenon of cross‐relaxation between 5D3 and 5D4 are also mentioned. The energy transfer is confirmed to be resulted from a quadrupole‐quadrupole mechanism.
