UV photo-excited Eu2+ and Eu3+ luminescence from CaF2:Eu and CaF2:Eu, Bi phosphors were investigated. The effect of gamma exposure followed by temperature effect shows conversion mechanism between Eu2+ ↔ Eu3+ ion in CaF2:Eu and CaF2:Eu, Bi phosphors which were studied for RPL dosimetry. The photoluminescence and X-ray diffraction characterization are reported in this article.
