Project description

The goal of this project is the synthesis of doubly doped calcium-yttrium silicate materials with the general formula {Ca2Y}[Mg,Sc,Al,Ga]2(Ga,Al,Si)3O12. These Ce3+ and Eu2+ doped ceramic materials will be studied as new phosphors for white-light emitting diodes (LEDs). It will be especially innovative to obtain these materials as transparent nanoceramic layers.
