We examined the photoluminescent behaviors of MgSiN2:Mn2+ and MgSiN2:Ce3+,Mn2+ phosphors for use in white-light-emitting diodes. The red emission from MgSiN2:Mn2+ phosphors consisted of two Gaussian components, P1 from a single Mn2+ ion and P2 from either Mn2+ pairs or clusters. Decay analysis based on the Yokota and Tanimoto equation identified long decay for P1 and fast decay for P2. Most importantly, Ce3+ codoping enhanced Mn2+ emission intensity; in particular, emission at 460 nm excitations was promoted by the Ce3+ codoping.
