Abstract

We report a new dicalcium silicate phosphor, Ca(2-x)Eu(x)SiO4, which emits red light in response to blue-light excitation. When excited at 450 nm, deep-red emission at 650 nm was clearly observed in Ca1.2Eu0.8SiO4, the external and internal quantum efficiencies of which were 44 % and 50 %, respectively. The red emission from Ca(2-x)Eu(x)SiO4 was strongly related to the peculiar coordination environments of Eu(2+) in two types of Ca sites. The red-emitting Ca2SiO4:Eu(2+) phosphors are promising materials for next-generation, white-light-emitting diode applications.
