Abstract

Mn4+-activated red phosphors have attracted considerable attention as promising red components in the spectra of white light emitting diodes (WLEDs) to achieve warm white light with superior performance. Herein, a novel red phosphor based on Mn4+-doped dodec-fluoride Li3Na3Al2F12:Mn4+ (LNAF:Mn) with microcubic morphology was obtained at room temperature. To elucidate the underlying relationship between the crystal structure and photoluminescence of LNAF:Mn, a phosphor LiNa2AlF6:Mn4+ with similar composition has been prepared, and their morphology and optical properties were comparatively investigated. The emission of the red phosphor LNAF:Mn is blue shifted compared to LiNa2AlF6:Mn4+ suggesting that the chromaticity coordinates of LANF:Mn are closer to the ideal red point (0.67, 0.33). The luminescence properties of LNAF:Mn have been improved by optimizing the synthetic conditions. This work exhibits a strategy to explore a novel Mn4+-doped fluoride except for the identified hexa-fluorides. Employing the as-prepared red LNAF:Mn as a red component, a high-performance WLED with a correlated color temperature (CCT) of 3874 K and a color rendering index (CRI) of 90.6 was obtained. This suggests the phosphor is a potential commercial red phosphor in warm WLEDs.
