Structure and photoluminescent properties of microstructural YBO3 : Eu3+ nanocrystals.


PMID 17450801

Abstract

YBO3 : Eu3+ nanocrystals (NCs) were prepared by a hydrothermal method and characterized by field emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy. The results demonstrate that morphology and structure of the NCs varied strongly with hydrothermal temperature. Their luminescent properties were investigated in comparison to the bulk. A large number of NO3- groups were adsorbed at the surface of hydrothermal products, which acted as luminescent killers; Two symmetry sites of Eu3+ ions in NCs, the interior and the surface sites, were identified by the site-selective excitation and time-resolved emission experiments; The intensity ratio of 5D0-7F2 to 5D0-7F, of EU3+ at the surface site increased greatly than that at the interior site; as a result, the chromaticity was improved; The total radiative transition rate of 5D0-sigmaJ7FJ for Eu3+ at the surface site was 3-5 times larger than that at the interior.
