Paper Abstract

Rare earth doped Y2CaZnO5 nanophosphors were synthesized via the citrate-gel combustion method. Transmission electron microscopy measurements reveal that the particles are distributed uniformly within the size range of 10-30 nm. The Er3+-doped Y2CaZnO5 nanophosphors show strong green upconversion luminescence, which is visible to the naked eye even at 20 mW excitation power of 980 nm diode laser. When these phosphors are codoped with Yb3+ ions, the emission changed to reddish color at higher Yb3+ ion concentrations. Moreover, these phosphors emitted bright white light luminescence when it is triply doped with Er3+/Tm 3+/Yb3+ ions, indicates Y2CaZnO5 nanophosphors are an ideal candidate for phosphor converted white light emitting diodes.
