|Abstract:||Rare earth Ce and Dy doped polycrystalline Li2BPO5 phosphors were prepared by high temperature solid state reaction. Photoluminescence emission spectra of the phosphor suggest the presence of Ce3+ ions in Li2BPO5:Ce and Dy3+ ions in Li2BPO5:Dy lattice sites. The prepared phosphors were characterized by the X-ray powder diffraction and photoluminescence techniques. The PL emission spectrum of Dy3+ ion under 348 nm excitation was observed at 481 nm (blue) due to 4F9/2→ 6H15/2 transitions and 576 nm (yellow) emission due to 4F9/2 → 6H13/2 transitions in prepared borophosphate phosphor. The PL emission spectra of Ce3+ ion was observed at 346 nm in ultraviolet region by 235 nm excitation. In this paper, PL and lyoluminescence (LL) characteristics of Li2BPO5:Ce, Dy borophosphate phosphors have been reported. The LL results show the LL emission of Li2BPO5:Ce3+, Dy3+ phosphor in blue-yellow region of the spectrum and linear response curve of LL with gamma rays exposure up to 3.5 kGy. These LL characteristics of Li2BPO5:Ce3+, Dy3+ phosphor may be useful for high radiation dose using LL technique.|
