The major phase of post-treated Ca(Y 0915-xGd x Al 0.025Eu 0.06)BO 4 (0 ≤ x ≤ 0.3) phosphors was solid solutions of the constituent oxides, which had an orthorhombic warwickite-like structure. The calculated crystallite size of the Ca(Y 0915-xGd x Al 0.025Eu 0.06)BO 4 phosphors was ~36 nm. The Gd additive significantly enhanced both the charge transfer (CT) transition of O 2--Eu 3+ and the absorption of the host materials, thereby resulting in an increase in emission intensity. The Ca(Y 0.715Gd 0.2Al 0.025Eu 0.06)BO 4 phosphor showed the highest emission intensity at 593 nm, which was over five times as strong as that of a Gd-free Ca(Y 0.915Al 0.025Eu 0.06)BO 4 phosphor. The addition of Gd was desirable for improving the photoluminescent properties of red-emitting Ca(Y 0.915 Al 0.025Eu 0.06)BO 4 phosphors.
