Characterization Of Eu3+ -Doped Yttrium Aluminum Garnet Nanocrystals - A Review

Authors(1) :-Anil R. Saradva

In the present work, we synthesize Yttrium aluminum garnet:Eu by nitrate–citrate sol–gel process and the structure of the materials was analyzed by means of X-ray diffraction,showing the cubic garnet phase of Yttrium aluminum garnet. We studied the effect of thermal treatment on crystalline size and we distinguished the Eu3+ ion presence by means of optical spectroscopic measurements
