Insight into Eu redox and Pr3+ 5d emission in KSrPO4 by VRBE scheme construction

Abstract

Series of Ln-doped KSrPO4 (Ln = Ce3+, Eu3+, Eu2+, Pr3+) phosphors are prepared through a high-temperature solid-state method. The KSrPO4 compound is confirmed to be β-K2SO4 structure with Pnma group by Rietveld refinement, and the temperature-dependent lattice parameters are investigated with the powder X-ray diffraction results at different temperatures. Ce3+ and Eu3+ ions are introduced to probe the crystal field strength (CFS) and the lanthanide site symmetry by VUV-UV-vis spectroscopy. The temperature-dependent luminescence properties of KSrPO4: Ce3+/Eu2+ exhibit excellent thermal stability of Ce3+/Eu2+ luminescence. Based on the VUV-UV-vis spectra of Ce3+ and Eu3+ doped KSrPO4, the vacuum referred binding energy (VRBE) scheme is constructed to understand the redox properties of Eu, the 5d energy levels of Pr3+ and thermal quenching characteristics of Ce3+ and Eu2+ luminescence.
