Abstract

In this letter, poly(vinylidene difluoride) (PVDF)/(Y0.97Eu0.03)2O3 rare-earth nanocomposites were prepared by a simple co-precipitation method, and their morphology, structure, and optical properties were investigated. The scanning electron microscope (SEM) images showed that the (Y0.97Eu0.03)2O3 rare-earth nanoparticles formed 50 nm-2 µm aggregates in PVDF matrices. X-ray diffraction (XRD) curves indicated the incorporation and structure preserving of (Y0.97Eu0.03)2O3 nanoparticles in PVDF matrices. Photoluminescence (PL) spectra of the nanocomposite showed a characteristic red light emission at 612 nm, which was attributed to the intrinsic emission of (Y0.97Eu0.03)2O3 nanoparticles. Optical band gap (Eg) of the nanocomposite exhibited a decreasing trend with the increase of (Y0.97Eu0.03)2O3 content in PVDF matrices within the experimental dosage range.
