The effect of ferromagnetic impurities (Fe, Co, and Ni) on the laser induced optical parameters of CaS:Bi phosphors has been studied. The studies were done for the Bismuth concentration of 0.4% in CaS phosphors due to the highest value of oscillator strength as reported earlier. The studies were conducted using nitrogen laser as a excitation source in a pulse excitation mode at room temperature. Appreciable changes in the optical properties have been detected after the addition of ferromagnetic impurities in the CaS phosphor doped with bismuth. The nature of the multiple exponential decays remains the same even after the addition of ferromagnetic impurities in the present case of bismuth-doped phosphors which is in agreement with the earlier work reported on other dopants in sulfide type phosphors. As ferromagnetic impurities enhanced the optical parameters of CaS phosphors appreciably, these studies shows that they can be used to control the transition probability and the corresponding optical parameters.
