abstract

  • Among the methods currently used for nanophase processing, synthesis through dispersion phase (aerosol) enables generation of ultrafine powders with controlled stoichiometry. It represents a "bottom-up"
    chemical approach that provides control over a variety of important
    parameters enabling the formation of either amorphous, nanocrystalline
    or metastable phases. Particularly, the opportunities of the hot wall
    aerosol synthesis, i.e. spray pyrolysis, for the generation of ultrafine
    phosphor particles with uniformly distributed components,
    nano-clustered inner structure and luminescence properties is
    demonstrated in following systems: Gd2O3:Eu, Y2O3:Eu, (Y1-xGdx):Eu and
    Y3Al5O12:Ce, highlighting the research activities in the Institute of
    Technical Sciences of SASA, Serbia and the University Carlos III,
    Madrid, Spain in the framework of COST 539 Action.
