Converting Eu2+ to Eu3+ in europium-doped LMA Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract Optical measurements of the luminescence of Eu 2+-doped lanthanum magnesium aluminate (LMA or LaMgAl 11 O 19) after high-temperature annealing in various atmospheres are reported. Major differences in the excitation spectra are explained by the reversible conversion of Eu 2+ into Eu 3+.
