Abstract

In this paper, cerium doped lutetium pyrosilicate (LPS) powders with cerium content (0.05 and 0.07 mol%) were prepared by sol-gel process. The formation of lutetium pyrosilicate (LPS) phase was confirmed by XRD analysis for the powders heated at $1,200^{\circ}C$; in these powders, a single phase of $Lu_2Si_2O_7$ (LPS) was observed. Cerium doped lutetium pyrosilicate (LPS) powder was agglomerated and constituted of small spherical particles with diameters of about 300 nm. The photoluminescence spectra of the $Lu_2Si_2O_7:Ce^{3+}$ powders showed the characteristic of excitation and there was an emission spectrum for $Ce^{3+}$ in the host of $Lu_2Si_2O_7$. The emission spectrum shows a broad band in the range of 350-525 nm; the broad wavelength on the right side of the spectra should be ascribed to the same 5d-4f transitions of $Ce^{3+}$, as in the case of cerium doped $Lu_2Si_2O_7$ single crystals.
