Time decay of the excited states of Eu+ 2 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. Changes in the time decay can be related to the reversible conversion of Eu+ 2 into Eu+ 3.
