A series of Lu3+, Tb3+: CeF3 nanoparticles were successfully prepared via the hydrothermal method. The results show that the nanoparticles exhibit obvious green emission after being effectively doped with Tb3+ ions, and the luminous intensity further increases with the increase of Lu3+ doping concentration. Hysteresis loops show that the magnetic susceptibility of Lu3+, Tb3+: CeF3 nanoparticles is 0.1310 emu/g under a magnetic field of 10,000 Oe. These proof-of-concept results show that Lu3+, Tb3+: CeF3 nanoparticles can be widely used in many important fields. It provides a theoretical basis for the combination of luminescent and magnetic properties of nanoparticles.
