A novel method for the preparation of non-agglomerated nanometre sized particles of lanthanum phosphate phosphors utilising a high surface area support in the firing process.

Abstract

A convenient method is described that uses a quartz<> wool substrate to immobilise nanometre sized phosphor precursor particles enabling them to be fired at high temperature without sintering/agglomeration. The nanometre sized phosphor particles are easily removed from the substrate by re-dispersion into liquid for subsequent use.
