High efficiency BaAl12O19:Mn2+ phosphor particles with spherical shape and non-aggregation characteristics were prepared by large-scale spray pyrolysis from aluminum polycation precursor solutions. The phosphor particles prepared from nitrate precursors had a hollow and irregular structure under the preparation conditions of high concentration solution, high flow rate of carrier gas, and large size reactor. However, the BaAl12O19:Mn phosphor particles prepared from aluminum polycation precursor solution had completely spherical shape and filled morphology after post-treatment at 1400 °C. The as-prepared particles obtained from aluminum polycation precursor solution had spherical shape and dense structure under the severe preparation conditions by forming viscous gel precursors at the drying stage of the droplets. The mean size of the BaAl12O19:Mn phosphor particles increased from 1.2 to 2.7 μm when the concentration of the solution changed from 0.8 to 2 M. The prepared BaAl12O19:Mn phosphor particles had high luminescence intensities irrespective of the type of precursor solutions under vacuum ultraviolet. The maximum peaks of the prepared BaAl12O19:Mn and the commercial Zn2SiO4:Mn phosphor particles are located at 516 nm and 527 nm, respectively.
