Cathodoluminescence of Boron Nitride Nanotubes Doped by Europium

Chen, Hua; Zhang, Hong-Zhou; Chen, Ying; Liu, Yun; Li, Chi; Williams, James

Description

Boron nitride (BN) nanotubes are wide-band-gap semiconductors, which make them an ideal host material for doping with rare-earth ions. Special luminescent properties are expected in doped BN nanotubes for applications in nanosized lighting and display devices. Europium (Eu) doped BN nanotubes have been synthesized by using a ball-milling and annealing method. A broad visible light emission, excited by electrons, from the Eu2+ doped BN nanotubes has been realized. The Eu element content in the...[Show more]

dc.description.abstractBoron nitride (BN) nanotubes are wide-band-gap semiconductors, which make them an ideal host material for doping with rare-earth ions. Special luminescent properties are expected in doped BN nanotubes for applications in nanosized lighting and display devices. Europium (Eu) doped BN nanotubes have been synthesized by using a ball-milling and annealing method. A broad visible light emission, excited by electrons, from the Eu2+ doped BN nanotubes has been realized. The Eu element content in the nanotubes has been determined by electron probe microanalysis. The mechanism of visible light emission from the Eudoped BN nanotubes is discussed.
