Luminescence properties of Sr5Nb4O15: Sm3+ reddish-orange phosphors



  1. College of Materials Science and Engineering, Xihua University, Chengdu 610039, PR China


In this study, Sr5Nb4O15: Sm3+ phosphors were synthesized using a high temperature solid-state reaction method. Their phase composition, particle size distribution, morphology and photoluminescence spectra were investigated by X-ray diffraction, laser granulometry, scanning electron microscopy and fluorescence spectrometer, respectively. The XRD pattern showed that the as-prepared phosphors were single phase with no impurity, and the introduction of Sm3+ had little influence on the crystal structure. The particles of phosphors exhibited a good crystallization and a narrow size distribution with the average diameter of about 1μm. The phosphors presented excellent near ultraviolet and blue light absorption. Under excitation at 406nm, the Sr5Nb4O15: Sm3+ phosphors emitted bright reddish-orange light at 601nm deriving from 4G5/2→6H7/2 transition of Sm3+ ions and the optimal doping concentration of Sm3+ was found to be 9mol% for emission intensity reaching to the top. The obtained results indicated that the Sr5Nb4O15: Sm3+ phosphors have high potential for white-light-emitting diodes application..
