Europium doped LaMgAl(11)O(19) phosphor was prepared by the combustion met hod The as-prepared and post-treated (1350 degrees C 10 h 5% H(2)+95% N(2)) phosphors wen investigated by X-ray diffraction (XRD) Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) scanning electron microscopy (SEM) photoluminescence (PL) and electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) techniques XRD patterns show that LaMgAl(11)O(19) Eu phosphors have hexagonal structure FT-IR spectrum exhibits absorption bands corresponding to the stretching vibration of AlO(4) and AlO(6) Morphological studies reveal that this phosphor has faceted plates of varying sizes and shapes The as-prepared LaMgAl(11)O(19) Eu phosphor consists of both Eu(3+) and Eu(2+) ions The phosphor exhibits a bright blue emission at 450 nm (4f(6)5d -> 4f(7) transition of Eu(2+)) On post-treating the phosphor we are able to enhance the blue emission efficiency by 330% The process was detected from the evolution of excitation emission and EPR spectra and the results are discussed (C) 2010 Elsevier B V All rights reserved
