Abnormal site occupancy and high performance in warm WLEDs of a novel red phosphor NaHF2:Mn4+ synthesized at room temperature

Abstract

A novel red phosphor NaHF2:Mn4+ (NHF:Mn) was obtained via substituting Na+ occupied at the center of octahedron coordinated by six with F- ions and charge-compensated by two H+ ions with Mn4+ in host lattice of NHF. The phase purity and the exact composition of the obtained NHF:Mn were confirmed by x-ray powder diffraction (XRD) Rietveld refinement, energy dispersive spectrum (EDS), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and infrared (IR) spectrum, respectively. The luminescence intensity of NHF:Mn was enhanced by optimizing the synthetic conditions. A series of warm white light-emitting diodes (WLEDs) with color rendering index (CRI) higher than 88.0 and correlated color temperatures (CCT) between 3146 and 5172 K were obtained by encapsulating the as-prepared red phosphor NHF:Mn with yellow one Y3Al5O12:Ce3+ (YAG:Ce) on blue chips. The advantage of the synthetic strategy to obtain NHF:Mn can be extended to develop novel Mn4+ doped red phosphors via substituting for central ions with unequal electric charge in the centers of octahedron.
