Paper Abstract

We have developed a spraying process for coating individual phosphor particles with electrically conducting, non- conducting, and hybrid films. The phosphor is suspended in either aqueous or non-aqueous solvent containing the appropriate coating materials precursors. Depositions via gelation or precipitation of the precursor material on the particles is prevented before spraying. The suspension is sprayed into a hot zone where the coating either gels or precipitates on the particle surface in-flight. Coatings developed in-flight are more uniform than coatings developed in solution. Typical coating thicknesses of 10 to 90 nm have been achieved in a single pass. Multiple coatings are applied using multiple passes. This process is scalable to industrial sizes and is easily adaptable for coating particles for other applications.
