In doped samples, CaMoO4:Pr3+ and CaMoO4:Tb3+, quenching of the emission band attributed to MoO42- was also observed, and at pressure above 130 kbar this luminescence was totally quenched.

Abstract

Photoluminescence spectra and luminescence kinetics of pure CaMoO4 and CaMoO4 doped with Ln(3+) (Ln = D Pr or Tb) are presented. The spectra were obtained at high hydrostatic pressure up to 240 kbar applied in a diamond anvil cell. At ambient pressure undoped and doped samples exhibit a broad band emission extending between 380 and 700 nm with a maximum at 520 nm attributed to the MoO42- luminescence. CaMoO4 doped with Pr3+ or Tb3+ additionally yields narrow emission lines related to f-f transitions. The undoped CaMoO4 crystal was characterized by a strong MoO42- emission up to 240 kbar. In the cases of CaMoO4:Pr3+ and CaMoO4: Tb3+, high hydrostatic pressure caused quenching of Pr3+ and Tb3+ emission, and this effect was accompanied by a strong shortening of the luminescence lifetime. In doped samples, CaMoO4:Pr3+ and CaMoO4:Tb3+, quenching of the emission band attributed to MoO42- was also observed, and at pressure above 130 kbar this luminescence was totally quenched. The effects mentioned above were related to the influence of the praseodymium (terbium) trapped exciton PTE (ITE-impurity trapped exciton) on the efficiency of the Pr3+ (Tb3+) and MoO42- emissions.
