Abstract

The decay behavior of CaAlSiN 3 : Eu 2 + was monitored as a function of the detection wavelength on the Eu 2 + emission band for various Eu 2 + concentrations from 0.0005 to 0.05. The decay at the higher-energy side was faster and less linear than the lower-energy side decay for all Eu 2 + concentrations. This was due to an inhomogeneous broadening induced by the random distribution of Al and Si ions at a crystallographic site in the CaAlSiN 3 structure and to the successive site-to-site energy transfer. This phenomenon caused a redshift of the Eu 2 + emission band as the Eu 2 + concentration increased.
