Abstract

Under infrared radiation, the upconversion emission spectra of Lu3-x-yYbxEryAl5O12 consisted of green and red emission bands that were attributed to the 2H11/2/4S3/24I15/2 and 4F9/24I15/2 transitions of the Er3+ ions, respectively; these transitions occurred by means of an energy transfer (ET) process from Yb3+ to Er3+. The intensity of the red emission was higher than that of the green emission, thereby resulting in CIE chromaticity coordinates that lay within the yellow region. The emission ratio of red to green exhibited a strong dependence on the ratio of Yb3+/Er3+. These behaviors were attributed to cross relaxation between the Er3+ ions, multiphoton relaxation, and the ET process.
