Abstract

Orange-red-emitting sodium yttrium orthosilicate NaYSiO4:xSm3+ (x = 0.005, 0.01, 0.02, 0.05, 0.10, 0.15, and 0.20) were synthesized. The phase structure and photoluminescence properties of these phosphors were investigated. The emission spectrum obtained by excitation into 406 nm contains exclusively the characteristic emissions of Sm3+ at 571 nm, 602 nm, 648 nm, and 710 nm, which correspond to the transitions from 4G5/2 to 6H5/2, 6H7/2, 6H9/2, and 6H11/2 of Sm3+, respectively. The strongest one is located at 602 nm due to the 4G5/2 --> 6H7/2 transition of Sm3+, generating bright orange-red light. The optimum dopant concentration of Sm3+ ions in NaYSiO4:xSm3+ is around 2 mol%, and the critical transfer distance of Sm3+ is calculated as 23 Å. The thermal quenching temperature is above 500 K. The fluorescence lifetime of Sm3+ in NaYSiO4:0.02Sm3+ is 1.83 ms. The NaYSiO4:Sm3+ phosphors may be potentially used as red phosphors for white light emitting diodes.
