The effect of particle size on life time in electroluminescent phosphor was investigated using fractionated samples. The life time of large-particle size phosphors was longer than that of small-particle size phosphor. It was found that particle size has a close relation with the lattice-parameter magnitude; the lattice parameter was larger in a small-particle size phosphor when the activator and coactivator content were the same. It was concluded that the lattice parameter was an important brightness life-time factor.
