Mn2+ doped and Ce3+-Mn2+ co-doped α-Sr2P2O7 phosphors were prepared by a traditional high-temperature solid-state reaction route. The UV-vis excitation and emission spectra for all samples were investigated. Luminescence of Mn2+ is assigned to from two different sites, which is similar to that of Ce3+. Energy transfer from Ce3+ to Mn2+ in co-doped phosphors α-Sr2P2O7: 0.03Ce3+, xMn2+ and α-Sr2P2O7: xCe3+, 0.1Mn2+ was investigated by the excitation and emission spectra as well as the luminescence decays. Both Ce3+(1) and Ce3+(2) can transfer energy to two types of Mn2+ ions.
