A series of single-phase Sr3YNa(PO4)3F:Dy3+ phosphors were successfully synthesized via a conventional solid state reaction process. The powder X-ray diffraction patterns were utilized to confirm the phase composite and crystal structure. The phosphor could be excited by the ultraviolet visible light in the region from 300 to 420 nm, and it shown two dominant emission bands peaking at 484 nm (blue light) and 580 nm (yellow light) which originated from the transitions of 4F9/2→6H15/2 and 4F9/2→6H13/2 of Dy3+, respectively. The optimum dopant concentration of Dy3+ ions was confirmed to be 7 mol% in Sr3YNa(PO4)3F:Dy3+ system and the concentration quenching mechanism is dipole–dipole interaction. The lifetime values of Dy3+ ions at different concentrations (x = 0.03, 0.05, 0.07, 0.09 and 0.11) were determined to be about 0.855, 0.759, 0.686, 0.606 and 0.546 ms, respectively. The thermal stability of luminescence of Sr3YNa(PO4)3F:0.07Dy3+ phosphor was also investigated and the activated energy was deduced to be 0.228 eV, which shows good thermal stability. The chromaticity coordinates fall in the white-light region calculated by the emission spectrum. These results show that Sr3YNa(PO4)3F:Dy3+ phosphor can be a promising white emitting phosphor for white LEDs.
