Abstract

To facilitate the next generation of White Light Emitting Diodes (WLEDs) with higher color rendering and warm lighting, the development of inorganic phosphor for efficient conversion of photons from blue/near-UV light to other visible wavelengths is essential. In this regard, we demonstrate a systematic, cost effective, solution-processable, easily scalable and fully controllable synthesis of a series of RbBaScSi3O9:xEu(2+) (x = 0.2, 0.5, 2, 5, 7), a new cyan emitting scandium silicate based phosphor with 79% internal quantum efficiency under n-UV excitation with robust thermal performance. The concept as well as the methodology of using a ``Mineral Inspired Approach'' emerges as a new blueprint for the rational design of novel phosphor for phosphor converted WLEDs. The structural refinement, electronic structural calculation using ``Density Functional Theory'', characteristic photoluminescence study, lifetime measurement as well as the thermal quenching properties of the phosphor has been investigated in detail. Owing to the highly efficient cyan emission at lambda(max) similar to 492 nm a full-width at half-maximum of 63 cm(-1) that shows only very low thermal quenching (89.28% relative to the PL intensity at 150 degrees C with respect to that of measured at room temperature), reflects the great potential for the industrial application of this particular phosphor.
