Highly luminescent Eu3+-doped LaOF thin films have been prepared by a sol-gel procedure using La(hfa)(3) diglyme (Hhfa = 1,1,1,5,5,5-hexafluoro-2,4-pentanedione; diglyme = bis(2-metoxyethyl)ether) as a single-source precursor for lanthanum and fluorine. Europium doping (Eu/La = 3 and 10 atom %) has been achieved by adding the proper amount of europium acetate hydrate (Eu(CH3CO2)(3)center dot xH(2)O, x <= 4) to the precursor solution. After single-layer deposition, the obtained coatings were heat treated in air up to 700 degrees C. All the samples, under UV irradiation, presented a bright red luminescence clearly visible to the naked eye notwithstanding the low europium content and the limited film thickness (:550 rim). The microstructure, composition, and morphology of the samples and their interplay with the synthesis conditions were investigated by glancing incidence X-ray diffraction (GIXRD), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS), and field emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM). The luminescence properties of Eu3+:LaOF in the energy and time domains are reported and discussed as a function of europium content and synthesis conditions. The observed variations in the light-emitting behavior of Eu3+ ions have been Correlated to the structural and compositional characteristics of the host oxyfluoride matrices.
