Three-dimensional (3-D) thermoluminescence (TL) spectra of Eu3-:YVO4, Eu3+:YV0.4P0.6O4 and Eu3+:Ce:YPO4 powders irradiated by X-rays were studied in the temperature range 30-350°C.

The glow curves possess two major peaks indicating different defect structures. The first TL peak was observed at ∼ 85°C and represents defects in the anion sublattice. It was increased by extended firing and colloidization processes and by substituting PO3-4 for the VO3-4 anion. The second TL peak was found at 135°C and is generated by impurity defects in the cation site of an yttrium orthovanadate-phosphate system. It was identified by the assistance of the Ce dopant. In Eu3+:Ce:YPO4 the predominance of one of above-mentioned defect structures can be changed by a suitable selection of HCR parameters, thus obtaining high emission intensities caused by two orders of magnitude lower X-ray radiation levels than those used for the orthovanadates.

Abstract

Three-dimensional (3-D) thermoluminescence (TL) spectra of Eu3-:YVO4, Eu3+:YV0.4P0.6O4 and Eu3+:Ce:YPO4 powders irradiated by X-rays were studied in the temperature range 30-350°C. The powders were reacted by a special hydrolyzed colloid reaction (HCR) technique at ∼ 80°C and were subsequently fired at 800°C. The glow curves possess two major peaks indicating different defect structures. The first TL peak was observed at ∼ 85°C and represents defects in the anion sublattice. It was increased by extended firing and colloidization processes and by substituting PO3-4 for the VO3-4 anion. The second TL peak was found at 135°C and is generated by impurity defects in the cation site of an yttrium orthovanadate-phosphate system. It was identified by the assistance of the Ce dopant. In Eu3+:Ce:YPO4 the predominance of one of above-mentioned defect structures can be changed by a suitable selection of HCR parameters, thus obtaining high emission intensities caused by two orders of magnitude lower X-ray radiation levels than those used for the orthovanadates.
