Preparation of nano-sized YAG:Eu3+ particles by a microwave-assisted polyol process and their luminescence properties
Phases of yttrium-aluminum binary oxide have been selectively prepared by selecting a polyol solvent in a microwave-assisted polyol process. Using 1,4-butanediol as a polyol solvent, nano-sized particles of a pure phase of YAG have been prepared. Furthermore, Eu3+-doped YAG has been synthesized by applying this method. We have demonstrated that 8 at% Eu3+-doped YAG (replacement of Y3+) gave the strongest emission when the content of Eu3+ was varied.
