Paper Abstract

In this work we report the recent results of our investigations on synthesis of RE3+:Al2O3 nanopowders prepared by a method, in which organic compounds are used as a solvent and lanthanide organic derivatives, and discuss structural and luminescent properties of the powders and PMMA-based composites doped with these powders. The set of the Al2O3 nanopowder samples doped with RE3+ ions (where RE = Yb and Er) was manufactured and examined with respect of their structural and optical properties. The first PMMA-based composites doped with In this work we report the recent results of our investigations on synthesis of RE3+:Al2O3 nanopowders prepared by a method, in which organic compounds are used as a solvent and lanthanide organic derivatives, and discuss structural and luminescent properties of the powders and PMMA-based composites doped with these powders. The set of the Al2O3 nanopowder samples doped with RE3+ ions (where RE = Yb and Er) was manufactured and examined with respect of their structural and optical properties. The first PMMA-based composites doped with Al2O3:RE3+ nanopowders have been manufactured and characterized in the context of their mechanical, structural and luminescent properties. The investigations have confirmed applicability of developed synthesis method to manufacturing of optically active nanopowders of reasonably good structural quality and homogeneity, consisting of nanoparticles with average size in the range of several tens of nanometers as well as possibility of developing the active composite material, based on PMMA polymer host.
