In this study, ZnWO4: Dy3+ nanocrystals containing 0.5, 1, and 2 mol% of Dy3+ were synthesized by a coprecipitation method and grown in a microwave- assisted hydrothermal system at 140 degrees C for 1 h. X-ray diffraction, Rietveld refinement, and Fourier transform Raman and infrared spectroscopy analyses indicated that each of the crystals had a wolframite- type monoclinic structure, with no other phases present. Structural refinement was carried out to model the distorted octahedral {[}ZnO6], {[}DyO6], and {[}WO6] clusters. Furthermore, transmission scanning electron microscopy images revealed interesting crystal morphologies and a decrease of the average crystal size, which were dependent on the Dy3+ doping concentration. Ultraviolet-Visible diffuse reflectance spectra indicated that the optical band gap increases with increasing replacement of Zn2+ by Dy3+ ions. The photoluminescent properties, chromaticity coordinates, and lifetimes of the ZnWO4: Dy3+ nanocrystals were studied. (AU)
