CaAl(12)O(19):Cr powder phosphors have been prepared at 500 degrees C in less than 5 min by a combustion method and characterized by XRD, FT-IR, SEM, EPR and photoluminescence techniques. The g values evaluated from EPR spectroscopy indicate that the site symmetry around Cr(3+) ions is distorted octahedral as Cr(3+) ions substitute for Al(3+) sites. The number of spins (N) participating in the resonance for g = 1.97 is measured as a function of temperature and the activation energy is calculated. The paramagnetic susceptibility (chi) is calculated from the EPR data at various temperatures. From the plot 1/chi versus T, the Curie constant (C) and Curie paramagnetic temperature (theta(p)) have been evaluated. The exchange coupling constant J between Cr(3+) ions has also been evaluated. The excitation spectrum exhibits two broad bands characteristic of Cr(3+) ions in octahedral symmetry. The crystal field and Racah parameters have been evaluated and discussed.
