BaAl2O4:Eu2+, Nd3+,Gd3+ phosphors prepared at different initiating combustion temperatures (400-1200 oC) were annealed at 400-1200 oC for 3 hours. X-ray diffraction, SEM, FT-IR and Raman were employed to identify the structural phases, surface morphology and vibrational frequencies, respectively,and a 325 nm He-Cd was used for fluorescence measurements.
