Paper Abstract

An optical temperature sensor based on Yb3+ and Er3+ codoped La2(WO4)3 phosphor for using in the high temperature region is discussed on the basis of fluorescence intensity ratio (FIR) method. The dependence of temperature on the upconversion green emission was intensive studied when the temperature increased from 300 K to 550 K under the excitation of 971 nm laser diode. The fluorescence intensity ratio of the two green emissions bands centered at 525 nm, 545 nm changed dramatically with the thermal treatment. By analyzing the experimental data according to the FIR method, the result on the thermometric property of La2(WO4)3:Yb3+, Er3+ was obtained and it shows that the sensitivity of La2(WO4)3:Yb3+, Er3+ reached the maximal value of about 0.0097 K-1 at the temperature of 510 K, even when the temperature was as high as 900 K, the sensitivity could still exceed 0.007 K-1. Results indicate that La2(WO4)3:Yb3+, Er3+ has higher sensitivity for thermometry in high temperature area. Owing to its good thermal stability, low synthesis cost and high sensitivity, La2(WO4)3: Yb3+, Er3+ phosphor has potential application in optical temperature sensing.
