Study on the PSL mechanism in BaFCl:Eu2+ phosphors

Study on the PSL mechanism in BaFCl:Eu2+ phosphors In this paper, the ESR and photoluminescence (PL) of BaFCl and BaFCl:Eu2+ radiated or un-radiated by X-ray were observed. The single electron in the color center could be produced in BaFCl without Eu2+. A series of traps of different energy level in BaFCl lattice were formed, and some shallow traps of them could be bleached by Vis-light, and the other deep traps could not. The bleaching effects on ESR and photostimulated luminescence (PSL) were investigated. An F-H-Eu2+ complex (F color center, H color center and Eu2+ complex) in the lattice of BaFCl:Eu2+ was suggested when the phosphor was X-ray irradiated. The Eu2+ located in the complex has only contribution to the ESR signal, but has no contribution to PL spectrum. The excitation of both F-center and located Eu2+ could decompose the complex to induce bleaching. The 440 nm light could excite the F-centers and the 220 nm and 270 nm could excite the located Eu2+, and the excitation disturbed the F-H-Eu2+ complex and caused a decrease of the PSL. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Research on Chemical Intermediates Springer Journals

Abstract

In this paper, the ESR and photoluminescence (PL) of BaFCl and BaFCl:Eu2+ radiated or un-radiated by X-ray were observed. The single electron in the color center could be produced in BaFCl without Eu2+. A series of traps of different energy level in BaFCl lattice were formed, and some shallow traps of them could be bleached by Vis-light, and the other deep traps could not. The bleaching effects on ESR and photostimulated luminescence (PSL) were investigated. An F-H-Eu2+ complex (F color center, H color center and Eu2+ complex) in the lattice of BaFCl:Eu2+ was suggested when the phosphor was X-ray irradiated. The Eu2+ located in the complex has only contribution to the ESR signal, but has no contribution to PL spectrum. The excitation of both F-center and located Eu2+ could decompose the complex to induce bleaching. The 440 nm light could excite the F-centers and the 220 nm and 270 nm could excite the located Eu2+, and the excitation disturbed the F-H-Eu2+ complex and caused a decrease of the PSL.
