Abstract: In this work, we investigate photoluminescence of sol-gel derived films corresponding to yttrium alumina garnet Y3Al5O12 doped with trivalent europium. The films with three concentrations of europium 0,02; 0,025; 0,03 M with the thickness 210-220 nm were deposited on fused silica substrates by the corresponding sols’ spinning followed by drying and high temperature annealing at 1000 °C for 30 min. The samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive X-ray (EDX) analysis as well as ellipsometry, photoluminescence (PL) and photoluminescence excitation spectroscopy (PLE). All of the fabricated samples were amorphous and revealed room-temperature luminescence bands within the range of 550 – 750 nm corresponding to 5D0 → 7Fj (j=0,..,4) transitions of trivalent europium ions with the most intensive bands at 610 – 630 nm and 680 – 710 nm. The intensity of europium luminescence increases with europium concentration. The photoluminescence excitation spectra measured at the emission wavelength 710 nm exhibit strong bands at 220 nm, which could be associated with absorption of exciting light within Eu3+ - O2-bands. Practical application of the obtained films transforming ultraviolet irradiation into visible is discussed.
