La0.4Gd1.6Zr2O7:0.1%Pr transparent sintered ceramic – a wide-range luminescence thermometer

Author affiliations

Abstract

Sintered transparent ceramics, presenting extraordinary resistance to thermal shocks, incomparably larger than glasses, glass ceramics, and single crystals, maybe valuable luminescence thermometers especially for high-temperature applications. The literature on that subject is, however, very much limited at present. In this paper, the performance of La0.4Gd1.6Zr2O7:0.1%Pr3+ sintered transparent ceramics as a luminescence thermometer was investigated. Temperature dependence of the intensity ratio of emissions from 3P0 and 1D2 levels of the Pr3+ activator was found useful to measure temperature with reasonable relative sensitivity and accuracy over the 15–650 K range – one of the broadest achievable up to date. Time-resolved spectroscopy enabled distinct emissions from 1D2 and 3P0 in the red part of the spectrum. This allowed achieving an impressive relative sensitivity of the La0.4Gd1.6Zr2O7:0.1%Pr luminescence thermometer which exceeded 0.81% K−1 at 650 K.
