Abstract

The effect of a two-dimensional Y2O3:Eu3+ photonic crystal (PC) pattern on the extraction efficiency of photoluminescence from the underlying Y2O3:Eu3+ thin-film phosphor was investigated. The photonic crystal structure was fabricated using a direct nano-imprint process with a Pechini-type Y2O 3:Eu3+ sol as the nano-imprint resin and a patterned polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) stamp as the mold. The elevated pressure and temperature of the nano-imprinting process converts the Y2O 3:Eu3+ sol into a Y2O3:Eu 3+ gel resulting in high definition transfer of the 2D patterns of the master template into the gel on top of the Y2O 3:Eu3+ thin-film phosphor layer. The extraction efficiency of the 2D Y2O3:Eu3+ gel PC-assisted Y 2O3:Eu3+ thin-film phosphor was approximately 3.7 times higher than a non-PC Y2O3:Eu3+ gel coated Y2O3:Eu3+ thin-film phosphor.
