Box 339, B loemfontein, 9300, South Africa Sol-combustion synthesis was used to obtain nanocrystalline La2O2S:Eu red-emitting phosphors. X-ray diffraction (XRD) was employed to determine that the powders in the as-synthesized samples were crystalline. Upon increasing the La/S molar ratios, the crystallinity in the nanosized particles increased, which resulted in a higher photoluminescence emission intensity of these phosphors. Fourier-transform infrared spectrometry analysis showed that there is a negligible difference in the absorbed impurities with various molar ratios. Hence, it was concluded that the La/S molar ratio plays an important role in the luminescence intensity of these phosphors.
