Paper Abstract

Eu2+, Nd3+ co-doped calcium aluminate (CaAl2O4) phosphor with high brightness and long afterglow were fabricated by urea-nitrate solution combustion synthesis at 600°C. The phosphor powder of combustion synthesis were generally more homogeneous and had fewer impurity than phosphor fabricated by conventional solid-state methods, the character could conduce to obtain more exact data. The excitation and emission spectrum indicated that there waxs only one luminescence center Eu2+, both of the characteristic spectrums of Eu3+ and Nd3+ weren't discovered. As a secondary activator, Nd3+ could make remarkable influence on the afterglow of phosphor. From altering the moral ratio of Eu2+ and Nd3+, the lasting time of afterglow and thermoluminescence were studied respectively, when Nd3+ wasn't appended, the intensity of initial brightness could compared with other materials which had different ratio of Eu2+ and Nd3+, however the brightness of afterglow decayed rapidly, the lasting time and brightness of afterglow were improved with reduce the radio of Eu2+ and Nd3+, while the ratio achieved some value, the lasting time of afterglow become shorten with the reduce of ratio of Eu2+ and Nd3+. Moreover the depth of trap was calculated from the parameter of thermoluminescence. However, the emission spectrum and XRD patterns didn't change obviously with the altering ratio of Eu2+ and Nd3+. It showed that the little amount of doped rear earth ions (Eu2+ and Nd3+) had almost no effect on the CaAl2O4 phase composition. Based on these conclusions, the model of the luminescence process of CaAl2O4:Eu2+, Nd3+ was built.
