Paper Abstract

Under short TJV or roentgen radiation, the self-activated calcium tungstate phosphors (CaWO4:W) exhibit blue luminescence and could be used as luminescent pigments for the manufacture of X-ray intensifying screens and fluorescent lamps for luminous signs. As luminescent pigments, CaWO4:W phosphor has to possess high luminescence characteristics and well defined particle sizes. This study presents the influence of synthesis conditions on morphostructural and luminescent characteristics of CaWO4:W phosphors. Phosphors were prepared by thermal synthesis from mixtures consisting of precipitated CaWO4 and CaCl2 as flux; both reagents were luminescent grade. Calcination was performed at 600-1000 °C for 0.5-2.0 h, in air. The crystalline structure (XRD-patterns), particle size distribution and luminescent characteristics (emission and excitation spectra) ofphosphors were determined and interpreted.
