Mg2+/Ga3+ doped Y3Al5O12:Ce3+ phosphors were synthesized through a solid state reaction. The phase and luminescent of the synthesized phosphors were investigated. For Ga3+ codoped Y2.96Ce0.04Al(5−x)GaxO12 phosphors, the emission intensity increases with the increase of Ga3+ concentration up to Y2.96Ce0.04Al4.80Ga0.20O12 and then decreases with a further increase of Ga3+ concentration, but the emission peak shifts to shorter wavelength continuously in the Ga3+ doping concentration range of 0.05–0.25. For Mg2+/Ga3+ codoped Y2.96Ce0.04Al(4.8−y)Ga0.20MgyO12 phosphors, the emission intensity decreases and the emission peak shifts to longer wavelength continuously in the Mg2+ doping concentration range of 0.02–0.12. The emission spectra of Y2.96Ce0.04Al(4.8−y)Ga0.20MgyO12 phosphors demonstrate that the codoped Mg2+/Ga3+ ions not only induce the enhancement of Y2.96Ce0.04Al5O12 emission intensity but also lead to the red shift of Y2.96Ce0.04Al5O12 emission peak. The decay lifetimes decrease in Mg2+/Ga3+ codoped Y2.96Ce0.04Al5O12 phosphors due to defects formed by substitutions of Y3+ by Mg2+/Ga3+.
