L.Fernández-Rodríguez, M.Allix, G.Gorni, A.Canizarès, S.Ory, G.C.Mather, A.Durán, D.Levy, M.J.Pascual, 'Persistent luminescence of Eu/Dy-doped Sr2MgSi2O7 glass-ceramics processed by aerodynamic levitation', J. Eur. Ceram. Soc. (2022) doi:10.1016/j.jeurceramsoc.2022.08.062

Glass beads of the Sr2MgSi2O7 stoichiometric composition and a non-stoichiometric composition with higher SiO2/SrO ratio doped with Eu2O3/Dy2O3 were prepared through aerodynamic levitation coupled to CO2 laser heating. The glass beads were subsequently treated at 1100 ºC to produce glass-ceramics with Sr2MgSi2O7: Eu2+, Dy3+ as the main crystalline phase. The doped glasses exhibit red emissions; after crystallisation, the corresponding glass-ceramics emit blue light under UV excitation. The starting glass composition considerably affects the crystallisation process, resulting in Sr2MgSi2O7 glass-ceramics with very different microstructures which, in turn, have a significant influence on the luminescence properties. The photoluminescence emission spectra of the glass-ceramics under UV light show a broadband emission (λ = 400–500 nm) with a main peak assigned to the typical Eu2+ transition under excitation at 365 nm. Both the intensity of the emission and the persistence time significatively increase on decreasing temperature. Glass-ceramics from the non-stoichimetric glass composition co-doped with 1Eu2O3/0.5Dy2O3 (mol%.) provided the longest persistence times
