Abstract

In this study, the new temperature-dependent phosphor, Y 2 O 3 : Tb 3 + / Tm 3 + , was investigated for high-temperature thermometry. The photoluminescence intensity at 456   nm emitted from Tm 3 + was strong at temperatures higher than 1100   K , whereas the peak intensities emitted from Tb 3 + decreased due to the thermal quenching effect. Thus, the intensity ratio between those emissions showed an appropriate variation for thermometry over a wide temperature range. In addition, the phosphors showed a distinct change of visible emission colors from green to blue with increasing temperature. These findings suggest the applicability of these phosphors in visual thermo-sensors.
