The orthorhombic crystals of (Bi2-xEux)MoO6 prepared by microwave-assisted hydrothermal method presented, according to results obtained from the project linked to this proposal, structural, morphological and photoluminescent properties that set them as good candidates for potential use in phosphors and electro-optics devices, using a fast, simple and efficient experimental procedure for preparation of inorganic materials. There is also great interest over the behavior of mentioned properties when the material is subjected to femtosecond laser irradiation, since this type of radiation is able to alter the growth mechanism of nanoparticles, induce creation of periodic surface structures and/or generate structural deformations in the material, being very useful tool for the development of functional materials that present new applications and superior characteristics to the already existing non-irradiated compounds. This project aims to investigate the structural, morphological and photoluminescent properties of both pure and Eu3+ doped irradiated crystals of Bismuth Molybdate prepared by hydrothermal microwave-assisted method. The irradiated samples will be investigated by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, micro-Raman spectroscopy, UV-vis spectroscopy and photoluminescence measurements. Femtosecond laser irradiation will be used as a tool to elucidate the possible growth phenomena of metallic nanoparticles and their influence on the properties of the materials. (AU)
