Role of the Sintering Temperature and Doping Level in the Structural and Spectral Properties of Eu-Doped Nanocrystalline YVO(4).
Summary of "Role of the Sintering Temperature and Doping Level in the Structural and Spectral Properties of Eu-Doped Nanocrystalline YVO(4)."
A sol-gel approach was employed to prepare nanosized YVO(4) nanopowders doped with Eu(3+) ions. Raw nanomaterials were thermally treated at 700-1000 °C for 3 h. X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis demonstrated that single-phase nanopowders with high crystallite dispersion were obtained. Our studies were focused on relating the luminescence properties of the Eu(3+) dopant to the nanocrystallite (NC) size. Depending on the thermal treatment, the average NC size was calculated to range from 20 nm to 1.1 μm. We have found that the size effect manifests mainly in the expansion of the cell volume and broadening of XRD peaks, as indicated by Rietveld analysis. Moreover, emission and excitation spectra, although typical for the Eu(3+) ions, demonstrated some degree of correlation with the calcination temperature and doping concentration. To explain these differences a detailed analysis of the luminescence spectra by the Judd-Ofelt theory has been performed.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Fluoride-releasing restorative materials made by the sintering of metal (usually silver) particles to glass ionomer powder. Glass ionomers are fluoride-releasing cements that are not very durable. Sintering of the metal particles is a means of improving those physical properties that will make the glass ionomer cement more durable.
A benzofuran derivative used as a protein reagent since the terminal N-NBD-protein conjugate possesses interesting fluorescence and spectral properties. It has also been used as a covalent inhibitor of both beef heart mitochondrial ATPase and bacterial ATPase.
The measure of the level of heat of a human or animal.
Doping In Sports
Illegitimate use of drugs for a desired effect in competitive sports; includes humans and animals.
The most abundant form of RNA. Together with proteins, it forms the ribosomes, playing a structural role and also a role in ribosomal binding of mRNA and tRNAs. Individual chains are conventionally designated by their sedimentation coefficients. In eukaryotes, four large chains exist, synthesized in the nucleolus and constituting about 50% of the ribosome.
