Abstract

We examined the photoluminescent behaviors of Mg Si N 2 : Mn 2 + and Mg Si N 2 : Ce 3 + , Mn 2 + phosphors for use in white-light-emitting diodes. The red emission from Mg Si N 2 : Mn 2 + phosphors consisted of two Gaussian components, P1 from a single Mn 2 + ion and P2 from either Mn 2 + pairs or clusters. Decay analysis based on the Yokota and Tanimoto equation identified long decay for P1 and fast decay for P2. Most importantly, Ce 3 + codoping enhanced Mn 2 + emission intensity; in particular, emission at 460 ‚ÄČ nm excitations was promoted by the Ce 3 + codoping.
