    • Abstract


      CdS nanoparticles doped with Tb3+ were synthesized by sol–gel technique. The influence of CdS on the Tb3+ glass was studied by UV-Visible and luminescence spectroscopy. The luminescence intensity of the glasses increased significantly in the presence of CdS nanoparticles. Terbium ions excited into the ${}^{5}D_{3}$ level have a rich emission spectrum in the 400–700 nm range decaying to different ${}^{7}F_{J}$ levels. The intensity of violet and blue luminescence from ${}^{5}D_{3}$ level is highly dependent on Tb3+ concentration, on presence of CdS co-dopant and annealing conditions.
