Abstract

Tm-doped LuAG and LuSAG precursors were synthesized through a co-precipitation process, using ammonium hydrogen carbonate as precipitator. Single-phase cubic LuAG/Tm and LuSAG/Tm phosphors were obtained after calcinations at 1000oC and 1200oC, respectively. These powders could be easily sintered into corresponding transparent ceramic LuAG/Tm and LuSAG/Tm in H2 atmosphere at 1850oC. The PL excitation and emission spectra were recorded for both phosphors and ceramics. All emission spectra (λex = 355 nm) show blue emissions at 455 and 460 nm corresponding to the Tm3+ transitions 1D23F4 and 1G43H6.
