Synthesis and Characterization of Red Emitting Sr2CeO4: Eu3+ Nano Phosphors
The phosphors Sr2CeO4: Eu3+ was successfully synthesized by solid state reaction method. The X-Ray diffraction (XRD) profile confirms the orthorhombic structure of Eu3+ doped Sr2CeO4 nano phosphors. The efficiency of the prepared phosphors was analyzed by means of its emission spectral profiles. We also observed a rich red emission from the prepared phosphors under Ultra- Violet (UV) source. Such luminescent powders are expected to be applied as red phosphors in display devices applications. In addition, Scanning electron Microscopy (SEM), Fourier- Transformation IR spectroscopy (FTIR), and Raman Spectrum were also used to study the synthesized phosphors.
