Abstract

Abstract: In this study, lanthanide-doped zirconia powders with improved luminescent properties were prepared using a facile coprecipitation method. The morphology and structural properties of obtained powders were analyzed by using the field emission scanning electron microscope, X-ray diffraction, and magnetic properties measurement system, while their optical properties were investigated by room-temperature photoluminescence spectroscopy. We showed that codoping of Gd3+ into ZrO2:Eu3+ could improve the emission intensity of ZrO2:Eu3+ powders, and the emission peaks intensity varied with the codoping concentration of Gd3+. The possible mechanism leading to a luminescence enhancement in Gd3+-codoped ZrO2:Eu3+ powders has been discussed. Graphical Abstract: [InlineMediaObject not available: see fulltext.]
