Paper Abstract

High-luminance EL emissions were found to be obtainable using newly developed Mn-activated Y2O3-based multicomponent oxide phosphors composed of Y2O3 in combination with another binary compound, B2O3, Al2O3, Ga2O3, In2O3, Gd2O3, GeO2 or SiO2. The EL characteristics were investigated using a thick ceramic sheet-insulating-layer-type TFEL device. The Mn-activated Y2O3-based phosphor thin films were deposited by rf magnetron sputtering and postannealed. Luminances above 1000 cd/m2 were obtained in TFEL devices fabricated using a ((Y2O3)X-(Ga2O3)1-X):Mn, a ((Y2O3)X-(Gd2O3)1-X):Mn, a ((Y2O3)X-(Al2O3)1-X):Mn or a ((Y2O3)X-(GeO2)1-X):Mn thin film prepared with various compositions (X) and driven at 1 kHz. In particular, high luminances above 7000 cd/m2 for yellow emission were obtained in 1 kHz-driven TFEL devices using a ((Y2O3)0.6-(GeO2)0.4):Mn or a (Y2O3)0.5-(Ga2O3)0.5):Mn thin film prepared with a Y2O3 content of 60 or 50 mol.percent, respectively. In addition, high luminances above 500 cd/m2 and luminous efficiencies of approximately 10 lm/W were obtained in these TFEL devices driven at 60 Hz. High-luminance multicolor emissions that changed from yellow to green could be obtained in TFEL devices using a ((Y2O3)1-X-(Ga2O3)X):Mn thin film by increasing the Y2O3 content from 0 to 100 mol. percent.
