Study Results from University of Texas in the Area of Nanorods Reported (Synthesis and luminescence properties of BiPO4:Ce,Tb nanorods)

July 11, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- Fresh data on Nanorods are presented in a new report. According to news reporting out of Arlington, Texas, by NewsRx editors, research stated, "This paper reports the synthesis and luminescence properties of rare earth doped BiPO4:Ce,Tb nanorods which were prepared via a solvothermal method."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the University of Texas, "The nanorods are of hexagonal structure and they have intense luminescence. In Ce3+/Tb3+ co-doped nanorods, there is energy transfer from Ce3+ to Tb3+ which enhances the luminescence of Tb3+."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "These materials may find applications in solid state lighting and radiation detection."
