Photoluminescence properties of $CaS_{1-x}Se_x:Eu$ phosphors

$CaS_{1-x}Se_x:Eu$ 형광체의 발광 특성

  • Published : 2007.10.31


We synthesized a series of $CaS_{1-x}Se_x:Eu$ red-emitting phosphors for application in phosphor-converted three-band white light emitting diode(LED). The photoluminescence and structural properties of $CaS_{1-x}Se_x:Eu$ were examined. The $CaS_{1-x}Se_x:Eu$ phosphors have a strong absorption at 455 nm, which is the emission wavelength of a blue LED. CaS:Eu has a red omission peak at 651 nm due to the $4f^65d^1(T_{2g}){\rightarrow}4f^7(^8S_{7/2})$ transition of the $Eu^{2+}$. The emission peak of $CaS_{1-x}Se_x:Eu$ is shifted from 651 to 598 nm with increasing Se content. $CaS_{1-x}Se_x:Eu$ can be used as wavelength-tunable red-emitting phosphors pumped by a blue LED. We also fabricated a three-band white LED by doping $SrGa_2S_4:Eu$ and $CaS_{0.50}Se_{0.50}:Eu$ phosphors onto a blue LED chip.

형광체-변환 3파장 백색 발광 다이오드(LED)의 응용을 위하여 일련의 $CaS_{1-x}Se_x:Eu$ 형광체를 합성하였다. $CaS_{1-x}Se_x:Eu$의 구조와 발광 특성을 조사하였다. $CaS_{1-x}Se_x:Eu$ 형광체는 청색 발광 다이오드의 발광 파장인 455nm에서 강한 흡수가 있다. $Eu^{2+}$$4f^65d^1(T_{2g}){\rightarrow}4f^7(^8S_{7/2})$ 전이 때문에 CaS:Eu는 651nm에서 적색 발광 봉우리를 가지고 있다. $CaS_{1-x}Se_x:Eu$의 발광 봉우리는 Se이 증가함에 따라서 651nm에서 598nm으로 이동이 된다. $CaS_{1-x}Se_x:Eu$ 형광체는 청색 LED로 여기하면 가변 파장의 적색 발광을 하는 형광체로 사용될 수 있다. $SrGa_2S_4:Eu$$CaS_{0.50}Se_{0.50}:Eu$ 형광체를 청색 발광 다이오드에 도포하여 백색 발광 다이오드를 제작하였다.
