ABSTRACT
Manganese materials with attractive optical properties have been proposed for applications in such areas as photonics, light-emitting diodes, and bioimaging. In this paper, we have demonstrated multicolor Mn2+ luminescence in the visible region by controlling Ce3+-Mn2+ energy transfer in rare earth nanocrystals [NCs]. CeF3 and CePO4 NCs doped with Mn2+ have been prepared and can be well dispersed in aqueous solutions. Under ultraviolet light excitation, both the CeF3:Mn and CePO4:Mn NCs exhibit Mn2+ luminescence, yet their output colors are green and orange, respectively. By optimizing Mn2+ doping concentrations, Mn2+ luminescence quantum efficiency and Ce3+-Mn2+ energy transfer efficiency can respectively reach 14% and 60% in the CeF3:Mn NCs.

Mentions: Both the CeF3:Mn and the CePO4:Mn NCs were synthesized by effective hydrothermal processes. The prepared CeF3:Mn NCs are shaped as hexagonal plates with average sizes of ~25 nm, as shown by the TEM image in Figure 1a. Figure 1b demonstrates CePO4:Mn nanowires with an average diameter of ~8 nm and an average length of ~400 nm.
