• Eu(III)-doped barium tellurooxyphosphate phosphor with orange-red emission

Eu$^{3+}$ photoluminescence (PL) is studied in the tellurooxyphosphate, Ba$_2$TeO(PO$_4$)$_2$, host. A series of phosphor compositions with varying concentrations of Eu$^{3+}$ dopant in Ba$_2$TeO(PO$_4$)$_2$ are synthesized by high temperature solid-state reaction and the PL spectra are recorded. Under 395 nm wavelength excitation, the emission spectrum shows a single peak corresponding to the non-degenerate transition, ${}^5$D$_0$ $\to$ ${}^7$F$_0$ indicating that Eu$^{3+}$ preferentially occupies a singlecrystallographic site. The peak due to the degenerate hypersensitive ${}^5$D$_0$ $\to$ ${}^7$F$_2$ electric dipole transition of Eu$^{3+}$ in theemission spectrum indicates that the site occupied by Eu$^{3+}$ in the tellurooxyphosphate host lattice is non-centrosymmetric. The CIE coordinate values are $x = 0.61$ and $y = 0.34$ and are found to be close to the values of the reference phosphor Y$_2$O$_3$:Eu$^{3+}$.
