Enhanced emission of Mn2+ via Ce3+ → Mn2+ energy transfer in α-Sr2P2O7.


PMID 23263138

Abstract

Mn(2+) doped and Ce(3+)-Mn(2+) co-doped α-Sr(2)P(2)O(7) phosphors were prepared by a traditional high-temperature solid-state reaction route. The UV-vis excitation and emission spectra for all samples were investigated. Luminescence of Mn(2+) is assigned to from two different sites, which is similar to that of Ce(3+). Energy transfer from Ce(3+) to Mn(2+) in co-doped phosphors α-Sr(2)P(2)O(7): 0.03Ce(3+), xMn(2+) and α-Sr(2)P(2)O(7): xCe(3+), 0.1Mn(2+) was investigated by the excitation and emission spectra as well as the luminescence decays. Both Ce(3+)(1) and Ce(3+)(2) can transfer energy to two types of Mn(2+) ions.
