Abstract

Nanocrystalline La O Cl : Tb 3 + Sm 3 + phosphors were synthesized by a Pechini-type sol-gel process. Under UV and electron-beam excitation, La O Cl : Tb 3 + Sm 3 + show the characteristic emission of Tb 3 + ( D 3 , 4 5 F 6 , 2 7 ) and Sm 3 + ( G 5 2 4 H 5 2 , 7 2 , 9 2 6 ) , respectively. In particular, the cathodoluminescence (CL) color of La O Cl : Tb 3 + can be tuned from blue to green by changing Tb 3 + -doped concentration, and their CL intensities (brightness) are higher than those of commercial products Y 2 Si O 5 : Ce 3 + and ZnO:Zn, respectively. White CL can be realized by codoping with Tb 3 + and Sm 3 + in a single-phase LaOCl host. The obtained white light is very close to the standard white light. These phosphors are promising for application in field-emission displays.
