Yellow-emitting NaCaPO4:Mn2+ phosphors were prepared by the Pechini sol-gel process. Under low voltage electron beam excitation, the NaCaPO4: Mn2+ phosphor screen shows bright yellow emission (centering at 560 nm due to the 4T16A1 transition of Mn2+) with the CIE color coordinate (0.428, 0.552), which has a higher color purity than commercial yellow-emitting FED phosphor (Zn, CdS):Ag+. The color range and chromaticity saturation may be greatly enhanced when the yellow-emitting NaCaPO4: Mn2+ is added as an additional phosphor of the typical tricolor FEDs phosphors, which make them have potential to improve the display quality of full-color FEDs.
