Recent Studies from Martin-Luther-University Add New Data to Physics Condensed Matter (Mossbauer spectroscopy of europium-doped fluorochlorozirconate glasses and glass ceramics: optimization of storage phosphors in computed radiography)
The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from Martin-Luther-University, "Routes for maximizing the divalent europium content were also investigated. By using EuCl2 instead of EuF2 in the starting material a fraction of about 90% of the europium was maintained in the Eu(2+) state as opposed to about 70% when using EuF2. The glass ceramics produced by subsequent thermal processing contain BaCl2 nanocrystals in which Eu(2+) is incorporated, as shown by the narrower linewidth in the Mossbauer spectrum. Debye temperatures of 147 K and 186 K for Eu(2+) and Eu(3+), respectively, were determined from temperature dependent Mossbauer measurements."
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The f-factors were used to obtain the Eu(2+)/Eu(3+) ratio from the area ratio of the corresponding absorption lines."
