Hydrothermal Synthesis and Luminescence Property of Nanoscaled BiPO4:Eu3+ Powders


, : Hydrothermal Synthesis and Luminescence Property of Nanoscaled BiPO4:Eu3+ Powders. Journal of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology 16(4): 3827-3830

A series of Bi1-xPO4:xEu3+ phosphors were prepared using a simple hydrothermal method. The effects of pH and Eu3+ doping on the structure, morphology and luminescence properties of BiPO4:Eu3+ were investigated systematically. X-ray diffraction (XRD) and field emission scanning electron microscope (FE-SEM) results reveal that the as-prepared BiPO4 crystals are in a low temperature monoclinic phase (LTMP), and have a rod-like structure with a size in the range of 1-5 µm at pH 1. Increasing the pH to 2 transforms the BiPO4 to its hexagonal phase (HP), with peanut-like structures ranging from 50 to 150 nm. At pH 1, when the doping level is increased to 0.07, the phase transformation from LTMP to HP occurs, meaning that the amount of HP components increase with increasing Eu3+ doping. Furthermore, all the diffraction peaks of the Bi1-xPO4:xEu3+ can be fitted very well to HP when x = 0.11. The photoluminescence (PL) spectra suggest that orange-red luminescence can be observed in the series of BiPO4:Eu3+ phosphors, and that concentration quenching occurs when x = 0.07.
