Abstract: High sensitive Y2O3:Eu3+, Gd2O3:Eu3+, (YxGd1-x)O3:Eu3+, YAG (Y3Al5O12):Eu3+ and (YxGd1-x)BO3:Eu3+ luminescence display phosphors have been made by pyrolysis route followed by sintering at a relatively low temperature of 1000°C. The photoluminescent (PL) efficiencies of all the five phosphors under UV excitation are found to be comparable to that of commercial (YxGd1-x)BO3:Eu3+ (LG make). The PL efficiency as well as 395 nm (4f-4f) to 260 nm (charge transfer) excitation intensity ratio in Y2O3:Eu3+ was found to vary in a complex way with Eu concentration. YAG:Eu3+ could serve as a cheaper substitute to Y2O3:Eu3+ red phosphor used currently in compact fluorescent lamps. While the PL efficiency of Y2O3:Eu3+ remains fairly constant with excitation temperature in the region 25-250°C, the PL efficiency of (YxGd1-x)BO3:Eu3+ gets reduced by more than 30% when the excitation temperature increased from 25 to 250°C.
