EuKNaTaO5: Crystal Growth, Structure and Photoluminescence Property
The synthesis, structure determination, and intrinsic luminescent properties of a new tantalate, EuKNaTaO5, are reported. Single crystals of the title compound were grown out of a reactive KOH/NaOH eutectic melt. Luminescence in many materials is activated by doping a rare earth cation into the solid matrix; we report undoped, all-rare earth EuKNaTaO5, which exhibits bright orange room temperature photoluminescence.
