  • functional materials;
  • complex defects in ZnSe-based phosphors


The influence of different thermal treatments, codopants and impurities upon the defect structure, luminescence characteristics and stability of the ZnSe-based phosphors are investigated. It was found that the brightness of annealed phosphors increases at 300 K if the flux residue is previously removed. The highest instability exhibit doped only with Cl phosphors. Dissociation of Cl-related complexes as a possible cause of instability is proposed.
