Abstract

The use of thermographic phosphors for high-temperature (>1000K) thermometry currently is limited by loss of signal due to thermal quenching. This work demonstrates a new phosphor generated by substituting tetrahedral site Al3+-O2 in YAG:Dy with B3+-N3 to produce YABNG:Dy. Conventional YAG:Dy and YABNG:Dy phosphors were synthesized using identical solgel synthesis techniques. X-ray diffraction measurements showed that both had nearly pure crystalline phases, with a minor secondary yttrium-aluminum-monoclinic (YAM) phase present in the YABNG:Dy. The YABNG:Dy sample had a larger and more spherical primary grain than did the YAG:Dy in scanning electron microscopy images. Tests of the thermal response showed that the YABNG:Dy had much stronger phosphorescence emissions than did YAG:Dy, likely due to the morphological differences. Furthermore, the onset of thermal quenching was delayed by approximately 100 K for YABGN:Dy compared to YAG:Dy, and the rate of signal decrease with temperature was reduced. This resulted in greater signal-to-noise ratios and less uncertainty in the temperature measurements, particularly at high temperatures.
