Luminescent Nanoribbons: New Ternary Europium Aluminate Luminescent Nanoribbons for Advanced Photonics (Adv. Funct. Mater. 16/2013)



original image

On page 1998 Zhengwei Pan and co-workers report three kinds of europium aluminate nanoribbons that exhibit new compositions, new crystal lattice structures, and new luminescence properties and mechanisms. These luminescent nanoribbons under ultraviolet light (on bulk nanoribbons) and their synchrotron X-ray microbeam excitation (on individual nanoribbons) are shown in the center image. Background image is a Laue microdiffraction pattern acquired at the Advanced Photon Source from the blue luminescent nanoribbon.
