The emission band of Sr 2 Si 5 N 8 : Eu 2 + phosphors consists of two peaks originating from two different crystallographic sites for Eu 2 + activators in the Sr 2 Si 5 N 8 structure. The two-peak emission behavior is closely related to the energy transfer between activators at those sites. A rate-equation model involving the crystallographic information of the host was used to quantify the time-resolved photoluminescence spectra and to systematically analyze the energy transfer behavior.
