Monodisperse spherical Gd2O2S:Tb nanoparticles have been prepared using an improved homogeneous precipitation method combined with solid-gas sulfuration technology. The effects of Tb3+-doped concentration on luminescent intensity and color purity of samples were investigated, and the optimal Tb3+-doped concentration was determined. Under the excitation of X-ray, the obtained sample shows excellent luminescent properties, and its luminescent intensity is increased by about 50% under lower sulfuration temperature compared with that of the Gd2O2S:Tb nanoparticles prepared by complex precipitation method.
