Abstract

The investigation of efficient red phosphors is highly desired for the development of novel warm white light emitting diodes (WLEDs). In this paper, we report on an efficient red phosphor of Mn4+-activated BaTiF6 by a facile co-precipitation method as a promising candidate for warm white LEDs. BaTi1−xF6:xMn4+ phosphors show efficient pure red emission with a high quantum yield (QY) of 44.5% under 460 nm excitation. The BaTi1−xF6:xMn4+ phosphor exhibits a number of advantages. Firstly, the corresponding excitation/absorption profile matches the commercial blue LED chip well. Secondly, it also exhibits appropriate CIE coordinates (x = 0.694, y = 0.306) with an activation energy of 0.603 eV. The demonstration of a blue chip combined with a blend of yellow-emitting YAG:Ce3+ and newly developed BaTi0.97F6:0.03Mn4+ red phosphor greatly improved the colour rendering index (CRI) from 69.9 to 83.5, while significantly decreasing the correlated colour temperature (CCT) from 5088 to 4213 K, thus validating their application in warm white LEDs.
