Pure and Mn-doped SrNb 2 O 6 nanoparticles have been prepared by sol-gel combustion method using citric acid as fuel and complexing agent and nitrates as oxidants at a relatively low temperature compared to solid-state reaction method. X-ray diffraction (XRD) patterns of the pure SrNb 2 O 6 samples show that the SrNb 2 O 6 nanoparticles exhibited orthorhombic phase. Photoluminescence (PL) properties of all the undoped and Mn-doped samples were studied in detail. For the pure SrNb 2 O 6 samples, a strong blue …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
