Yttrium gadolinium aluminate ((Y1-xGdx)(3) Al5O12:Ce) doped cerium phosphors with the different yttrium and gadolinium concentration were prepared by a wet-chemical route via the reagent simultaneous addition technique (WCS-SimAdd). The phosphors were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and photoluminescence (PL), radioluminescence (RL) of cerium doped yttrium gadolinium aluminate phosphors. With increasing Gd dopant concentration, the PL intensity was shifted to the red region. Preliminary RI measurements were performed to further evaluate these newly prepared materials. Intense RL was observed that is typical of Ce3+ doped structure. (C) 2012 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
