Abstract

A \(\hbox {BaAl}_{2}\hbox {O}_{4}{:}\hbox {Gd}^{3+}\) phosphor was successfully prepared using a combustion technique. An X-ray diffraction pattern was used to characterize the resultant phosphor, and the photoluminescence (PL) of the prepared \(\hbox {BaAl}_{2}\hbox {O}_{4}{:}\hbox {Gd}^{3+}\) was studied. Under a 273-nm excitation, the main emission peak of the phosphor is located at 314 nm, and this is attributed to the \(^{6}\hbox {P}_{7/2}\,{\rightarrow }\,{} ^{8}\hbox {S}_{7/2}\) transition of \(\hbox {Gd}^{3+}\). Electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectrum appears to be U-shaped, and lines are evident at \(g_{\mathrm{eff}} \sim 2.14\), 4.56 and 6.75. The PL and EPR analyses indicate the presence of Gd as \(\hbox {Gd}^{3+}\) in this sample.
