A novel green phosphor of Eu 2+-doped Ca 5(PO 4) 2SiO 4 was prepared by a solid-state reaction. The Ca 5(PO 4) 2SiO 4:Eu 2+ phosphor was excited at wavelengths of 220-450 nm, which was suitable for the emission band of near ultraviolet (n-UV) light emitting diode (LED) (350-430 nm). In Ca 5(PO 4) 2SiO 4:Eu 2+ phosphor, there were three distinguishable Eu 2+ sites, which resulted in a strong green emission peaking at 530 nm and broad bands up to 700 nm. The effect of the activated Eu 2+ concentration on the photoluminescence (PL) emission intensity of the Ca 5(PO 4) 2SiO 4:Eu 2+ was also investigated. Here, a phosphor-converted LED (pc-LED) was fabricated through the integration of an InGaN-based n-UV LED and the Ca 5(PO 4) 2SiO 4:Eu 2+ phosphor. All of these characteristics indicated that this phosphor had a potential application in n-UV-based white LEDs.
