Eu2+-doped BaAl2O4 green phosphors were prepared by a conventional solid-state reaction and the effects of Dy 3+ co-doping on the photoluminescence property were investigated. The phosphors were characterized by X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), fluorescence spectroscopy, field-emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). XRD showed that all prepared samples exhibited a hexagonal BaAl2O4 phase. Fluorescence spectroscopy showed that the photoluminescence efficiency increased with increasing Eu 2+ concentration until 3 mol% then decreased at higher concentrations due to concentration quenching effect. Moreover, Dy3+ co-doping increased the photoluminescence efficiency of the Eu2+-doped BaAl2O4 phosphor.
