Study Results from Fujian University of Technology Update Understanding of Nanocrystals

March 7, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- Research findings on Nanocrystals are discussed in a new report. According to news reporting from Fujian, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Eu3+-doped SiO2-ZnO-Ga2O3 composite was fabricated by sol-gel method."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from the Fujian University of Technology, "X-ray diffraction analysis and transmission electron microscopy observation revealed that gamma-Ga2O3 nanocrystals were formed and distributed homogeneously among the amorphous matrix. The influence of the Ga2O3 content on the Eu3+ luminescence properties was discussed."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Importantly, the Eu3+ emission intensity of the composite with 20% Ga2O3 was about 5.5 times stronger than that of the sample without Ga2O3, which is attributed to the efficient energy transfer from the nanocrystals to the rare-earth ions."
