Erratum

Erratum to: J Mater Sci (2009) 44:3889–3899 DOI 10.1007/s10853-009-3531-7

On page 3891, the 14th line from the bottom of the page in the left-hand column should read as follows: S:Eu3+, ([P\(\bar{3}\)m1, 164], JCPDS # 26-1422; Lattice constant:

On page 3895 some of the labels in Fig. 5b are incorrect. The transition around 704 nm should be assigned to J = 4, and the sample emission spectra, reading from top to bottom, should be labeled B, B7, B8, B9, B10, B11, and B12.

In the discussion of Fig. 6b on page 3896 several references are made to “Y” which should have referred to “Gd” instead. The corrected sentence, beginning ten lines from the bottom of page 3896 in the left-hand column, reads as follows:

Intense absorption peaks in the regions around 600, 1100, 1400, and 3500 cm−1 may signify the presence of [ν(Gd/Eu–O), δ(Gd–S)], δ(S–O), ν(C–O), and δ(O–H) modes, respectively, in particular suggesting a significant modification in the stretching mode(s) of (Gd/Eu–O) complex.
