Abstract

Transparent ceramic and glass ceramic phosphors containing Ce<sup>3+</sup>-doped (Y,Gd)<sup>3</sup>Al<sup>5</sup>O<sup>12</sup>were prepared and luminescent characteristics pumped with blue LED were investigated. Transparent ceramic samples without Gd showed the best luminous efficacy as a white light source. Article not available.
