Laser-induced down-conversion parameters of singly and doubly doped ZnS phosphors
- 54 Downloads
Singly and doubly doped ZnS phosphors have been synthesized using flux method. Laser-induced photoluminescence has been observed in ZnS-doped phosphors when these were excited by the pulsed UV N2 laser radiation. Due to down-conversion phenomenon, fast phosphorescence emission in the visible region is recorded in milliseconds time domain for ZnS:Mn while in the case of ZnS:Mn:killer (Fe, Co and Ni) the lifetime reduces to microseconds time domain. Experimentally observed luminescent emission parameters of excited states such as, lifetimes, trap-depth values and decay constants have been reported here at room temperature. The high efficiency and fast recombination times observed in doped ZnS phosphors make these materials very attractive for optoelectronic applications.
