Paper Abstract

Lanthanide doped oxides nano materials have novel optical, physical and structural properties. Cubic Ho3+-Yb3+-Tm3+ co-doped Gd2O3 nanotubes are synthetize by a simple wet-chemical route at low temperature and ambient pressure followed by subsequent annealing heat treatment in muffle furnace. Nanotubes are formed by adjusting the pH value of reacting solution. The introduction of Yb3+ leads to strong visible upconversion luminescence and change the intensity ratio of the green, blue and red luminescence. In trichromatic laser display, research of how to enhance blue light is in the bottleneck period. In the experiment, the blue emission has been successfully improved. In certain doping ratio, distinct enhancement of blue emission and obvious degradation of green light have been observed, which is discussed in detail. X-Ray powder diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscope (SEM) and upconversion (UC) emission spectra are used to characterize the sample. Strong and adjusted upconversion luminescence determine that the nano material is a potential candidate for applications of biological probe, color displays, lighting and photonics.
