ABSTRACT

The concept, as well as the methodology of using a mineral-inspired approach in combination with solution parallel synthesis (SPS) for exploration of new phosphors among Na/Sr(Ba)/Al-silicate and Zr(Ti)-silicate minerals, is reported. By employing the proposed approach, we have discovered new phosphors of NaAlSiO4:Eu2+ and BaZrSi3O9:Eu2+, that emit green-yellow (553 nm) and blue-green (480 nm) light, respectively, when excited by radiation of 290 to 420 nm.
