Abstract: Nano-sized Eu3+ and Gd3+ doped lanthanum tungstates of composition La6-xLnxWO12 (Ln = Eu, Gd; 0 ≤ x ≤ 0.2) are prepared by sol-gel complexation method. These samples are characterized by powder X-ray diffraction (XRD). The average crystallite size is calculated from the XRD using Scherer’s equation. The electron spin resonance (ESR) spectrum of Gd3+ doped lanthanum tungstate (La6WO12) gives characteristic “U” type spectrum. The luminescence spectrum of Eu3+ doped La6WO12 gives characteristic 5D07Fn (n = 0 to 4) bands due to trivalent europium ions. The intensity of 5D07F2 transition decreases with increase in the sintering temperature due to depletion of surface Eu3+ ions. The intensity of 5D07F2 sintered at 700°C has highest intensity and may have laser applications.
